Got my first one, a 120, the week after Steve killed the Newton. A couple of weeks later I put my elbow on the screen, hard, and broke it (it was under a sheet of paper on my desk. So I then paid, more than I’d paid for the 120, for the screen replacement.

This meant a deeper commitment!  Palm Pilot was the new leader but I stuck with Newton. 

I scoured the stores for discontinued and surplus accessories and piled up a lot. As time passed I moved to a 130 and then 2100, which was just genius (especially with Dashboard installed) and stayed with that til just before iPhone came out. My kids grew up with eMates.
