We have a working model here at a computer store I work at. It POSTS but the system disk or drives must be shot because it doesn''t boot :( We also have a Kaypro 4+, Kaypro 2000, Atari 800, Commodore 2000, Commodore 64 on display!

I am the owner of the Robie pictured here. Back in the early ''90s I sent the keyboard to a place in I believe North Carolina to be repaired. I never seen it again. If anyone knows where I can find one please let me know. I have searched e-Bay for a replacement for a long time but have never found one.

A Robbie can be seen at David Addison''s office in "Moonlighting" second season.
It''s a nice show to spot old computers! :-)

I actually bought one of these. It was the first computer I ever actually owned. This was in 1985; the owner of the computer store was pricing them to move and I thought I was getting a bargain. It took me a couple of days to figure out that I'd outwitted myself. I eventually replaced the thing with an IBM PC-XT. A friend of mine bought the Robie; miraculously, we remain friends. The Robie was certainly durable. Short of an axe or a shotgun, nothing was going to break the thing, but it was a better boat anchor than computer.
