Excerpt: Does anyone remember the Apple Newton? It was arguably the first handheld mobile device and it was way ahead of its time. However, it had so many issues, it ultimately failed in the marketplace. Well, I remember the Newton. I owned four of them and I loved them all. Now, if you are wondering what my love of a failed Apple device has to do with a boombox, let me explain. The Newton had this thin, grippy, rubberized coating that made it look and feel different and cool.
Pros: "Love it" retro design, Pivoting dock connector, Decent sound, SRS digital signal processing built in, Convenient handle and strap
Cons: "Hate it" retro design, Weak FM, Bass just OK
