Everything about the Newton minus it's charm, and handwriting recognition has been made obsolete by modern devices like the iPhone. These devices are smaller, lighter, and have longer battery lives. They hold a infinite amount of information via the internet, and are easier to use and sync. They work seamlessly with modern technology and media, and are supported by both warranty and a growing community of developers. If it wasn't for the Newton's charm and the surprising longevity of its handwriting recognition it would have been dead long ago. It is only because of these two traits, and the fact it was designed by Apple, that the Newton lives on in the hands of the faithful today.
