There are two reasons why I'm particularly delighted by this, my recent eBay purchase:

Reason 1
It's boxed, with all its manuals, disks, cables and training guides.

Reason 2
It cost less than £30.

OK, so it's not quite as swish as Mr Brennan's eMate, but I'm rubbing my hands with glee at the mere thought. I always fancied a Newton, and while I doubt it'll sway me from my beloved Palm OS, I'm delighted that I got one in such good condition for so little money.
