This thing was like a "My First Computer". It had built-in music programs, spelling programs, and also a hard drive so that you could plug in a computer disk that would only be made for it. It was a fantastic computer!

I got a Computron for my birthday one year. I loved that thing! I played with it all of the time, even long after I lost the book that came with it.

I remember my Grandpa got this for me one birthday. I think the only thing I ever wanted to do on it was make music. I recently found it again, and I'm pretty sure it works. I just didn't happen to have on hand the 7 packs (or so it seems) of C cell batteries it requires. I also lost the book long ago. - November 08, 2007 - Report this comment

I had one of these for years!! Finally realized I was too old for it, handed it down to my brother and I bet it didn't make it another destructive!!

I remember two things about my Computron. Playing hangman, and also that it started to act really weird when the batteries were getting quite low. It would display weird characters and symbols on the screeen and make bizarre noises. Also, simply turning it off was not enough, it would turn itself back on and continue acting demonic, so I would have to remove the batteries.

Found my Children's toy, inserted batteries, yep still works. No book though, as with others if anyone knows where we could get a book that would be wonderful!
