    Hey all... I'm continuing my ever increasing switch to Apple by picking up a Newton 2100, the "best PDA ever!" My problem is, can I sync it with my iBook? How would I go about doing that?

    And also, does anyone have one in good condition for sale?

    Welll, the Newton is outdated technology. You would need to find a usb to serial (DIN8 or DIN9, I can't remember which)adapter and use atleast os 9 not OS X. Personal I'd just buy the Newton as a collectable and not a PDA.

    I know Griffin Technology makes one! Look in the MacAddict and Macworld Magazines in the ads section (in the back) you will find it. Also I think Keyspan makes one...also check out Macally check out the comanies's taht I listed websites, Hope I helped...

    I have one I might be willing to part with, and it's in good condition. As for connecting to an iBook, I have some links and things, although I've never tried it. I'll contact you if you're interested in looking things up and considering it.
