•I was showing Amy these messagepads that Apple made awhile back and thought it would be neat to have one. I'm not much for PDA's but these are pretty cool.<br><br>Is the model 2100 the best one they had? How is the 2000? I see both of them on ebay at decent prices....<br><br>
Loc: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
We use the MessagePad 2000 in the living room as our telephone directory. But we're slowly phasing it out and using the Palm Vx since it's smaller and more portable.<br><br>We have the external keyboard, 4MB memory card, leather case and power adapter. It's nice to have as a collector's item as Shelli said, but there are better solutions if you just want a PDA.<br><br>
2000 wasn't bad. Newtons had fantastic software, but they were too big and poor syncing software. If Apple made a lower priced Newton mini with good sync software, they would have flown off the shelves.<br><br>
Old Apple stuff is fun to have around. I have the original Apple PowerCD, as well as the Quicktake Camera. Too bad the CD is SCSI 1, and the camera uses ADB. <br><br>I actually still use the PowerCD. Since it's a stand-alone device, I don't have to have it connected to a computer, so I have it connected to some speakers in the living room – it makes for a VERY easy on the eyes/small entertainment sound system.<br><br>I'm MacGizmo,[color:red] and I approved this message.</font color=red>
