Newton News -- Thinking about buying a Newton? If so, you'll want to note that between now and through the last day in July, Apple is offering a $50 rebate on the purchase of a MessagePad 120. Or, you can get a $100 rebate for purchasing a MessagePad 120 along with an "eligible accessory." Eligible accessories include Apple's Newton Connection Kit version 2.0 for Macintosh or Windows, an external or PCMCIA fax modem, 2 MB or 4 MB flash storage cards, the Newton Print Pack, a battery charging station, a leather zip case, or a Newton enhancement pack.

To receive the rebate, you must send the appropriate coupon, along with your proof-of-purchase, to the rebate fulfillment center before 31-Aug-95. Coupons are (or will be soon) available at a variety of sources, including Apple's FTP site or by calling 800/999-0260 to have the form faxed to you. [TJE]
