    I've got something a bit different for y'all today!

    An Apple Newton MessagePad 130!

    This model of mobile history has just blew past it's 20 birthday and it'd like to go to a new home here before I consider eBay.
    (Being released March 1996, that puts it at odds with the (Palm) Pilot 1000 and 5000. Although I cannot confirm when exactly during the 130's couple-year run this specific model was manufactured.)

    Price: $57 OBO

    Condition: It's in good condition! Check out the photos!

    Includes:
    • The handheld itself
    • Original stylus
    • Original wall adapter (batteries not included, the backup CR2032 needs replacing too)


    Item Location: Virginia

    Shipping Details: USPS Priority, tracking number included

    Payment Options: PayPal Gift

    They were the bomb-diggety for their time. I remember wanting to get the Springboard Cellular pack and my wife just giving me "The Look". Eventually moved to Visor Prism (color!), Sony Clie, then my first brush with a smartphone, the Treo 650 (then 750, Centro). Loved what Palm was back in the day, was so sad to see them fall by the wayside. Same with BlackBerry (my second love after Palm). Fortunately I don't think Apple is going anywhere so third time must be the charm!

    Sorry to derail your thread, if I had the cash I'd pick this up just for kicks!

    Apple Newton MessagePad 130 Specs @ EveryMac.com

    This tells me $800. I've also seen $600.
    Regardless, it was before my time for the most part.
