Yes, I vaguely remember it. Wasn't there also an Apple netbook of sorts for kids - about a 7" screen?

Are you talking about the eMate, it was cheaper than the Newton (and slower) at only $799.

"is almost the exact same size as a VHS VCR tape"

what's a VCR tape Wink Laughing

It's hard to believe that people today are complaining about the size of the bezels on today's netbooks etc. This product goes to show that there is quite a challenge in making things small. We really take things for granted.
