The Newton 2000 is being discounted now by some retailers - check for 
Newton on Yahoo and find some of them.  The latest model it the Apple 
2100 so the earlier ones are cheaper.  Check around and see where the 
best deals are.  

I think the square wave bolus is a feature of the MiniMed 507 pump.
