I love computers. I hate computers. Mr. Robot serves both of my disfunctional personalities. Still, the business serves a real need in the community. Even I, (who have worked with computers as an installer, programmer, user, developer, designer, etc. since 1968) can no longer keep...More

This is definitely a must stop if you are nearby. They have possibly every console ever created. Some amazingly old computers, functional, and a great selection of games and accessories for each console, with fair prices.

Found every major (and some minor) computers and handheld games from the 70s 80s and 90s. Many of them working. The nicest people operate the store. If you are a tech enthusiast, this is a hidden gem.
