The Newton envious

The Newton envious may want to check out a current offer from several mail-order sources (including MacConnection and MacMall) for a Newton MessagePad 100 complete with Power Organizer Pack (fax modem and some software) for $199, hundreds less than the current price for a MessagePad 110. The 100 has the updated ROM (with better handwriting recognition) of its more expensive cousin, but has less RAM. Buyers should ask specifically for the MessagePad 100 with fax modem and software; apparently some buyers who weren't specific received just the MessagePad, which doesn't have the current ROM.
