I think it is how you use it, or what you would want to use it for. It didn't ever have the software or support the Newton did, or the developers that expanded the system long after it was canceled. The system didn't ever seem to be as open ended as the Newton (likely due to 'desk' design). One thing though, the Magic Link PC cards work GREAT in the Newton. They are smaller size but are SRAM and don't wear out like flash. I have a couple I used quite often and wouldn't mind picking up a few more.

One of the great things about this particular model is that it uses standard Sony camcorder batteries that you can find today. So there is no problem powering the device.
