[NTLK] FS: MP2100 and lots of accessories

Just hauled a box out of my garage filled with Newton stuff. It's
doing me no good sitting out in the garage, so if someone here wants
it, might as well. I took the box out because our garage floor got a
little wet (cardboard boxes suck - literally!) but the only things
that were damaged in this box were the original boxes and the one
carrying case.

This was an awesome package and I was a regular and fervent Newton
advocate. Wanted to be a programmer but never managed it. Makes me
sad to sell. Will probably try to get the OS flashed so I can try the
Einstein thing on my Nokia 770 (and maybe rationalize an N810, unless
Apple actually releases a new product in January!).

I'd be willing to sell the accessories without the MP2000, but not the
other way around; I'll let you know if anything has been sold off.
$250 sounds fair to me for the whole package, will lower the price if
I don't get any responses. I haven't put it on eBay, would rather
sell it to known enthusiasts.

I'm subscribed to the mailing list, so I believe you can respond here
if everyone would be interested; otherwise plese email me directly.

I'm in California (San Diego) and I can box it up and ship it out to
