Real computers in Knight Rider episodes

We all know the prop computers in the FLAG semi which filled the front wall but there was also real computers in the show, for example the red computer Devon uses in the Semi seems to be Entrex 480 Datascope.
Found a website about computers starring in tv & movies, here's the link for Knight Rider episodes:

Searched for the Randy's home computer in Soul Survivor where they found the "Orhpeus" file. Didn't find exact match but TEI Terminal Processor PT-208 from 1977 looks really close:
