Newton 130

Newton Messagepad 130

The Newton 130 was a big deal.

Distinguishing Characteristics

The case of the 130 is practically identical to the 120, except for the "130" designation. However, this is the first Apple Newton that provided a backlight. NOS version was 2.0.

The 130 is still a very useful Newton.

Rare Units

Clear 130? Yes.

The Clear 130 is a Clear unit that I have very little information on, aside from the fact that it does exist. As you can see in the picture, it is a "true" 130 (and not a 130 in a Clear 110 case), with PCMCIA lock switch in the correct location.

How many of these exist? I don't know.
