I highly recommend, unless there is something that only the TI-99/4 can do for you, that you switch to an Apple Macintosh or IBM PC-compatible system. If the reason you are looking to replace is that there is information you have on floppy disks that you need access to, there are ways of transferring the information over.

Tell us more about your problem please, and we will be happy to help you.

BTW, if you need a replacement, TI-99/4A's will be much easier to find than TI-99/8's... There's only 5 known TI-99/8 users on the 'Net, with none wanting to sell, and hundreds of TI-99/4A's. In fact, you can pick up plenty of TI-99/4A's on eBay (which is probably one of the only ways you'll find one.)
A new computer in this case might be preferrable, especially if all you are using these computers for is word processing. Get with the 2000's, pal.
So tell us WHY you need them, maybe we can give you ideas for modernization and transferring your necessary information.
Worst case scenario: you may be able to get the dead TI-99/4's repaired. There are still repairshops that can do this, but it will cost you a pretty penny for replacement parts. My advice is to get something much more modern, if it is to be used for daily business use.
