Your g3 parting saddened me. I am on several mailing lists for tech questions. One thing that often happens (and annoys me) is when alternatives to a person's question are posted. Such as the one I am respectfully submitting. Perusing eBay I see whole Wallstreets aplenty. A logic board for $10. Might this not be a route? I even think I might have one whole and hearty. Perhaps senility is settling in for me to say this but I'd rather part with it for someone actively using it than have it sit in my museum. (please don't quote me) also wondering since you actively use your newton why you use the 120 vs. a 2100 that can run the newer (and far better IMHO) newton OS? Just friendly questions. I'm always interested in others opinions on (older) tech.
