    I got mine for $20. Has all original accessories, manuals, stickers.. even the receipt! :eek: :D

    to sync it with os x you can download a program called newtsync, IIRC. Good luck! :)

    I got a whole package. MP 2100, Mac serial cable, serial dongle, pc serial cable wiith built in dongle, charger, battery good for 8-10, AA battery pack, 2-4MB cards, a 16MB card, 2-20MB cards, one with a slew of Newton packages, a cd full of newton packages and a Pico bluetooth card. Only thing missing is serial usb adapter.
    I'd let it go for $400

    I wouldn't pay $400 when others are paying $20.

    Check eBay. You won't get a functional 2100 with all these accessories for $20. Packages like this often go for $450+. Doesn't matter either way, I'd sell it for the right money, if not, I'll keep it.

    I would only want the basics, so you can keep yours.

    Missing Dongle..: (

    Got my Newt about 1 week ago,

    AMAZING piece of equipment, and beleive it or not its my first apple hardware (cept an ipod, in other words ex hardcore pc-ite).
    BUT
    Im missing the dongle thingi-maggiger that attaches the keyboard to the messagepad itself.
    Does anyone have one? (lol), ive been lookin on ebay and havent caught one (the last one i saw was before i got my newt and it went for 40 bucks - way too much for me to afford).
    Any help would greatly be appreciated.
