The first product in the Newton family operates under severe constraints in the areas of performance, cost, heat dissipation, power consumption, scalability, size and weight. This paper gives an overview of the Newton MessagePad system hardware, and focuses on the techniques and tradeoffs used to overcome these constraints. In particular, synergetic migration of functions from hardware to software and vice-versa are discussed.
