Newton eMate Prototype
Apple often created clear case prototypes for its hardware, specifically to check for flaws in the plastic molding process. This particularly lovely example is a fully functional Newton eMate 300 prototype.
I recently obtained this device, along with a handful of other goodies, from Maurice Sharp … the infamous Dr Llama who was part of the Apple DTS (Developer Technical Support) department. You can read a bit more about Maurice’s adventures at Apple in the following threads gleaned from the NewtonTalk mailing list.
Additional details to follow.
