I totally agree, dave: but... seems not everyone, here, does ;-)

saying the newton is still a viable and *practical* option is only true for geeks with good knowledge and spare time to dedicate to the most *vital* aspect of this matter: sharing data entered on the Newton with your main computer

when, one year ago, I opened the box where my 2100 is *archived* (btw: I always had a problem with its size: even "those days") and found everything was in place but my Farallon card's ethernet dongle... I kept it hanging around for a couple of months then... I put it back in the box, dripping only one, *very small*, tear ;-(

so... let's wait and see if the iTablet is more than just a rumor/hope ;-)
