 I believe that any of the newer backlights will last longer than the
 original.  Personally I prefer white.

uckily I live on the east side of the Atlantic Pond, so Frank was able not
nly source but also to install a couple of these for me (and his
orkmanship is far better than mine would have been).  The white really is
he business, especially for my aging eyes.
One other thing -- I think I mentioned it long ago, but it's worth saying
gain:  I've discovered that viewing the Newton screen through my polarized
unglasses intensifies the contrast and makes viewing a lot better in
ertain lights.  In fact, in certain lights the screen seems to light up
hen I'm wearing my shades, and the contrast is so good I can read it
ithout m reading specs.  Not bad.
