I have found a seller within driving distance selling Emates for $15 USD. He said they were "power tested" but didn't explain what that meant, I asked if anything showed on screen or if there was a chime but I haven't heard back. I assume he's trying to get rid of them but I don't want to buy a lemon even if it is only $15.
My new pet-peeve is people selling equipment in "working condition" with a picture where the screen is off. Your machine looks like a dead machine and there's no way to prove it!
Anyway, even though I haven't heard back from my last batch of questions, the seller has a good rating and I assume I can work through most problems. I'm assuming I'll have to remake my own battery pack but I see some of you have already posted instructions on how to do that.
My questions for you are,
- Is this a good price for an Emate?
- There are several available, would you buy 2-3 just in case, for parts?
- Where to find newton software?
- Can I get this working with my Quadra 840AV?
