I still sorta wish I had Raccoon, but I think that got lost in a move sometime - nothing remarkable, just a PowerBook 5300c. A bit thick, but otherwise quite dinky - lovely for use on the bus. But eventually, its 640x480 display became too small, with webpages gradually assuming greater resolutions, and Bunny came into my life. ^_^

Wish I'd had the chance to play with a Newton properly. Cool device. I was particularly impressed by the PCMCIA slot, so you could easily add a modem or ethernet. For now, I'll just make do with Hyzenthlay.
