Atari Portfolio in Terminator 2 - used to hack the ATM machines.

Commodore Amiga A1200 in episode of the TV series Cracker. The episode is called "Best Boys" and it's from season 3, episode 4. Solitare is played on it.

There was also a Commodore 64 in This is England '86 (the Channel 4 mini series).

A Commodore 64 pops up in Smallville as well. Here's a video clip :-

Films:

Jaws - Playing an arcade game called Shark Attack

War Games - Broderick Playing Galaga at start of film.

Night of Comet - Main character plays an Arcade game in lobby of Cinema where she works. I think it was Tempest.
