I think that was an 8-bit Atari home computer in the third film.

There is also a bread bin C64 in RED DWARF (season 3 I think) nailed to the wall of Starbug by the door. In the episode Psyions in which lister snogs a slime covered alien thinking it is a girl he had a crush on once, you can clearly see it...

Red Dwarf also had Amigas in it. On Holoship, Rimmer uses two at once to do the exam. It's nice to see that the most intelligent people in the universe are using Amigas (the holoship crew, not Rimmer) :D

Miami Vice also had an Amiga screen in a few episodes.

What about National Lampoons Vacation, where chevy chase has the vaction route mapped out on their computer that his kids where playing on and then pacman shows up being controlled by his son and tries to eat his car and then a space ship shows up controlled by his daughter and shoots the pacman, I'm assuming this was on an Atari of some sort.

What about in Swingers when they are playing EA NHL hockey and they are on the couch talking about how they took the violence out BUT yet you can still make their heads bleed lol.. Then Trent makes Waynes Gretzky's head bleed whilst Su was distracted..

Of course the film Wizard had super mario bros 3 in it, boy did I so want a NES when I saw that film but my parents would never go for it- ended up with a master system :(

Yeah, they were actually playing NHLPA '93 apparently, hence why the violence was still there despite their ramblings, but I haven't watched it :)
