I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

Newton 100 - The Original MessagePad

I scored a Newton 130 in the box for $100, and this guy came along for the ride. Very nice two-for-one deal. The original Newton 100, with stylus.

It was a little dirty, but it shined up nice with some alcohol.

Original stylus. Always a plus.

Something in the card slot? What do we have here?

Awesome! A free 2MB flash card! It’s an original card dated 1993.

I threw in some fresh AAAs and turned it on.

It worked like a charm.

The flash card works too.

Cool, I just remembered about that Newton 100 charger that I got with the last lot. I knew it would come in handy!

Very cool to have the first Newton.

OK, on to the 130....
