Welcome to the list. I have owned Newtons since the very beginning
(OMP) and the main one I use is a 2100 that I bought just a month or
so before Apple scraped it (or rather Jobs). I also have a 12"
PowerBook 1.33 G4.
I use a program called NCX by Simon Bell (
simonbell/connection/). This is a new program that he released only a
month or two ago and right now does not sync addresses but will back
up the Newton and allow you to transfer packages.

I use a USB - Serial (Apple Serial) adapter, a Apple serial to serial
and finally the serial dongle for the Newton.

Other ways are to get the correct ethernet card and network the
Newton with the portable. There is a bluetooth module for the Newton
that might work though I have not heard of anyone that has it working
