Did the movie TRON accurately depict the inner workings of a computer?

If you are true PC fanatic, you have seen the cult classic TRON several times. I know I have!

So, here's the question:

Did the movie accurately depict the inner workings of computers of that era? Did all the 'robots' and whatnots in the movie make sense when compared to the architecture and form of computer hardware and software of the era?

Or was it way too fantastical and not at all realistic depiction of computer's inner life?

What say you?

Tron Legacy did it way better.
