This came from someone who managed the mobile computing development group at Coke (as in Coca Cola) who reported that they did a lot of work with Apple. He said it was not built specifically for Coke and there were never any firm plans with it.

"Apple was more or less searching for a reason to build the tablet and never did find a market. I have no idea how many exist. I only know of one other and it is in a computer museum in California."

Based on the partial sticker on this as well as the sticker on the prototype stylus, it appears to be serial number 36.

Unfortunately, it came without a power supply and I’ve never been able to power it up (it’s a weird port size and shape – unlike other Newtons).

The following comes from Studio Taktika (http://www.taktika.com/StudioTaktika/portfolio/newton_web/newton_3.htm ):

Newton handheld, based on a letter-size footprint, featuring 2 pcmcia cards, retractable I/O door, removable battery pack, push-push stylus, IR, microphone and speaker.

From www.a-in-a-circle.com/newton/bic.html :

Ok. The team started from scratch again and designed a new device still following the old ideas. It was codenamed "Bic". Meanwhile the market developed a new and better touchsensitive screen which weren’t that precise and bright but much, much cheaper. They also thought that a second PCMCIA slot would be a good idea, because one was supposed to be used by a modem…. and where should the RAM card go?

15

In this video I replace the Power Port, DC Jack/Wire Harness in a Dell Mini 10. Table of Contents: Removal of Battery: 0:10 Keyboard: 0:26 Palm Rest / Touch Pad Assembly 1:10 Hard drive 1:20 Top case 2:28 DC Jack 3:15 Minor Set Back 3:30Reassembly 3:49 If you are having problems with your computer I can help! Send me a message or check out www.FastVideoTech.com If you plan on working on your laptop, please take notes and take your time. This video makes things look very easy. Some connectors will fall apart easier than they will disconnect and can take several minutes to slowly work apart. It is VERY easy to break small components that are expensive to replace. Depending on your individual skill level you may have more of a chance breaking something than fixing something. If your laptop is important to you, please let an experienced technician handle it. I have over 10 years experience working with computers. I will try my best to answer questions but please keep them related to the video and the work being done. Thank you for watching!
