More for your list. I hope you compile this so we can just refer to it
the next time someone asks this :)

Apple //c - that movie where the kids dream about some schematic of
            some gizmo that they then build and it allows them to travel
            through space without feeling any inertia and they build a
            spacecraft and fly to some alien ship and meet some kid aliens
            (I always forget the damn name of this movie)
Apple //c - 2010
Beverly Hills cops has some specific model of an IBM PS/2 (I think). I
   posted this one before.

I know more but my "personal computer" is currently not functioning at
optimal parameters.

And I still haven't figured out what that computer is in _Electric
Dreams_, although I suspect it's a kludged up dealy for visual effect.
