I bought an MP2000 from J&K (couldn't afford the extra $55, which is
as much as a 2100 upgrade costs anyway), and I'm happy with the
experience. It arrived in perfect condition, with no cosmetic or
functional defects. The only thing with J & K is that they don't
provide a whole lot of accessories with the Newtons they sell; you
get the Newton, stylus, rechargeable battery, AC adapter, and that's
it. If you go on eBay (hit or miss, obviously) you might be able to
get a package with a case, expansion cards, etc. but J & K has decent
prices and you can be sure you're getting something in good condition.

Gem Enterprises and Newton Sales sell a lot of accessories. If you
want a WiFi card, Sonny gave me a good piece of advice - buy one of
the original graphite AirPort base stations, which have WaveLAN
Silver cards inside of them. I got one on eBay for $26 and free
shipping, which is $10 less than the Bronze card sold by Gem (which
doesn't support WEP like the Silver).
