[NTLK] MessagePad 2000 ram upgrade options

I upgraded my 2000 to 2100 a long time ago. It involved completely taking the Newton apart and replacing the main board with one from a donor 2100. I am not aware of any other way of doing it. You best bet is probably purchasing a 2100 or pre-upgraded 2000, you’ll save yourself the trouble of sourcing the replacement board and having to do the disassembly/reassembly.

Good luck!
