Off the top of my head:

Atari 400 (game ports)
Amstrad PCW9512 (keyboard)
Amstrad PCW10 (keyboard)
Amstrad PCW16 (keyboard)
Amstrad MegaPC (game controllers)
Apple LISA (keyboard)
BBC Micro (cheating slightly since they were underneath the machine, but
still at the front)
CBM PET 8096SK (keyboard)
CBM B700 (keyboard) and probably all other seperate-keyboard PETs

can't think of any more for now.
