I don't see where integrated circuits, and computer parts are that hard to manufacture. Integrated circuits are just silicone and wire. Most can be printed right on the silicone boards. Remember they have the yoko's vast knowledge base to draw from, where as the people in DE did not have that link. Also the library at landing suggests that Robinton was well aware that knowledge on the computers could be lost again. I believe that is why they were hard copying the computer files
