The Apple Newton Emate brought a physical keyboard to the Apple Newton. Today, it can be picked up for less than USD 50 on eBay. Compared to today's netbooks and laptops it seems feature light and underpowered but what differentiates it is the Newton OS which provides a user interface that is both elegant and sophisticated. Despite the keyboard, the eMate retains its Newton touchscreen capabilities bringing an added dimension to application navigation. Internet connections and wifi connections are possible but rudimentary. Ironically this is one of its strengths as it allows the writer to compose documents without distraction. Consequently it is best used as an electronic typewriter. Newton users often have one when they want to input text in significant volumes.

I have no practical experience with the eMate, but I think it is fun to look at and it only cost me $20 so I felt it needed to be added to my collection solely on it's looks

A blast from the past! Really enjoyed working with this device. At the time it compared functionality with a hand-held device a PALM, but with then with a full keyboard, and great battery life.
