    I even have the keyboard and everything. Its been so long, and I have no idea when it was came out.

    Does anyone else have one still? :D

    I don't have a 120. but I have a 2000 and an emate 300 that are both in excellent working order. The eMate actually looks brand new, with no scratches and the original stylus -- and the original battery still holds a charge!

    The closest I have is a 130. The Newtons got a bad rap, but I have a soft spot for them all. I also have an original, as well as a 2100.

    Interesting stuff. Where did you find it? Was it in your attic or something? :)

    So awesome. I want to ordering a battery for it. How would I do this? Can I just use AAA's? My batteries are very old and 1 of the batteries in the pack had some acid coming out, so I removed it before and cleaned it out before damaging it. :) I just want to try it. I think the Newton is pretty sweet because the first iPad about 15-20 years back now. :)

    Yeah, standard AAs will work fine. The Apple battery pack is just a pre-packaged set of four NiMH AAs.
