I do as well -- and in some ways the Newton's problem was that it was simply ahead of its time. There was a way in which it was another attempt to try to shift paradigms, but it managed the unenviable trick of being simultaneously too bold and not bold enough. (Sometime if you're bored look up info on the original Apple Newton project, which had very little to do with what they actually released under that name.)

Even so, it had a tremendous cult following -- a MessagePad 2100, the last of the line, can still easily go for $150+ on eBay, which is pretty remarkable when you think about it. The same sure as heck can't be said for the Handspring Visor, the first PDA that I owned....
