was...

...I have run across a couple over the last few months. On the last batch, I repaired hinges and video cables and was sellig them for about $40 (included shipping), but I have parted with all of them or am holding the rest for pending deals/trades. I have extra chargers. None of the ones I had had stylii, but these can be had on eBay pretty easily.

Keep tabs on this site. They pop up now and then. I may get more later in March or even May, but cannot say at this time.

well...

well do you still have any left that your not holding for pending deals or trades and do you plan on gettin anymore? if you do i would really buy one from you. all i want is one that is damaged (hinges, touch screen, video cables, etc). im not worried about the stuyli its the power adapter and the emate itself that i would really need.

maybe...

I have one that needs a new screen at the minimum, maybe a new video cable (it was too damaged to repair). I will have to get back to you on that one. Otherwise, I am out of 'em.

Looking for a decent eMate

Have to agree with previous poster. Newtontalk.net is THE place to go for Newton listings. Got my eMate there and it came Brand New in orig box and everything. The Newtontalk archive even led me to where I could make my own PC serial adapter (those dark days when i was a PC user)
I love my eMate too much to sell it, sorry! (even though it wont work with OS X)

eMates

They're probably gone by now, but this morning I saw a guy on LEM Swap list advertising two of them, with styli, for $25 plus shipping - that's $25 for both, not each.

incomplete units

I saw these today on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=80052&item=5759374636&rd=1

I have no connection with the seller.

Just bare units, but for $15, might be worth the as-is gamble. I'm tempted myself and I'm already emated.

I have an emate 300

Hi,

I have an eMate 300. It has a power supply. I don't have the original stylus, but I have been using a tripple pen that has ink, mechanical pencil, and a stylus tip with no problems at all.

PM me if you think you are interested in it.

Thank you,
Chris
