Hello Everyone,

Is anyone else out there using a 130 as a day-to-day Newton? I guess I'm
looking for additional "positive reinforcement."

What I mean is: I favor the 130 for the more robust build quality (my
perception) and the fact that backup/replacement units can be had at
relatively low cost compared to the 2x00 Newtons.

But frankly, I think the primary reason I'm trying to eke out a 130 is: I
understand that the jump from a 1x0 Newton to a 2x00 unit is a rather
exciting and dramatic one. SInce this is something I'll experience only
once, I feel I'm obligated to drag out the suspense for as long as possible.
Alfred Hitchcock himself would be quite proud of me at this point.

So: are there any other MP 130 (or 1x0) owners still using their Newtons for
day-to-day tasks? Or does everyone else find themselves shaking their heads
and tut-tutting after reading this?
