Robin (VT 180) Microcomputer

Donated by Al Zelly.

The VT180 is a personal computer produced by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) of Maynard, Massachusetts.

Introduced in early 1982, the CP/M-based VT180 was DEC's entry-level microcomputer. "VT180" is the unofficial name for the combination of the VT100 computer terminal and VT18X option. The VT18X includes a 2 MHz Zilog Z80 microprocessor and 64K RAM on two circuit boards that fit inside the terminal, and two external 5.25-inch floppy disk drives with room for two more in an external enclosure. The VT180 was codenamed "Robin".

Digital later released a full-fledged personal computer known as the Rainbow 100 as the successor to Robin.
