Thanks to Frank Gruendel, I'm now the proud owner of three badly treated Newton MessagePads! My intention in acquiring them was to investigate case modding options. While I do like Jonathan Ive's original design of the MP2x00 series, there is some 90's bulkiness which would be great to shed. The most radical option is to take just the motherboard and display and construct a new housing. But even shaving off bits and pieces from the regular case might help.
