My Newton story:
I saw a Newton 120 for the first time in 1995 whilst an IBM customer was
congratulating me on the quality of their recently installed IBM
laptop-based internet solution. He was suddenly interrupted by one of his
colleagues and out of his pocket revealed the MP120, using it to record
the whole conversation and access detailed reference information at the
same time.
I went out and bought myself an MP130 straightaway and then paid 1,000 ukp
for the MP2000 when it became available This was quickly upgraded to a
MP2100. The mobile fax on the Newton enabled me to win a contract whilst
stuck in a motorway traffic jam for 3 hours. It paid for itself within 1
day !
I have documented how I use my Newton on the internet. Please refer to:
