    I was lucky to pick up this Clear Newton MessagePad 110 on eBay about 2 weeks ago. I showed it to my Mac Usergroup last week and they got a kick out of it. Apparently this Newton was given to the developers on the Newton 110 project in 1994 and they only produced ~100 of them. It's fully functional and the handwriting recognition is halfway decent. There is a clear stylus that comes with the unit. It runs on 4 AA batteries. I will post additional photos later.

    Thats really cool. I'm not gonna lie though, the handwriting recognition sucks on my MP100 vs my 2000 and 2100. They really made some vast improvements in Newton OS 2.0 and up. A clear newton is definitely worth holding onto.
