Is the adapter the Newton Interconnect Dongle? Converts NIC to
serial. If so good.

The Newton and Mac do not see each other in the same way that two macs

If you have a backup on a linear flash card or on a mac or pc of your
old Newt you can brainwipe the new Newt then restore the backup to
the new one. And except for system patches and some software that is
registered to the Newts id#, it will be identical to the one backed
up. Information can be beamed form one newt to another this means
data or packages.
