	You might want to look at Ectaco's jetBook-Lite. It's not much
wider or longer than a 2100's lid, runs on 4 AA batters, reasonably
priced (depending on where you buy it) and it's infinitely easer to get
ebooks on than a Newton (it uses standard SD cards).

Finally, while the newer devices sip power and can go for a long time
between charges, the Newton's 4-AA battery power source is hard to beat
in terms of ease of replacement.  I mean, it's one thing if you're in
the city and USB ports/wall outlets are easy to come by.  However, if
you're on the road, it's nice to be able to change batteries in seconds
and be ready to go.
