That looks like it could be a Mac Plus. The Apple logo in front is in line with the disk drive.

Thanks, Scoelho, I think you're right. I've changed it.

If you read the specification of the Mac, you will see "circa 1984". The Mac Plus was not in use before January 16, 1986. So Marty Mc Fly sees a computer of the future. This beige toaster should imitate the Macintosh 128K or 512K. The Mac appears to be platinum gray, which is even more inaccurate (grey were the Macs of 1987 and later)!

Macintosh Plus was the third model in the Macintosh line, introduced on January 16, 1986, two years after the original Macintosh and a little more than a year after the Macintosh 512K, with a price tag of US$2599...And It originally had the same generally beige-colored case as the original Macintosh. the case color was changed to the long-lived, warm gray "Platinum" color

I hate to say this, but..where are all of the things promised us in this movie? Where's the (partially) flying cars and home fusion reactors? Mostly, where are the smart houses that talk and the smart shoes and jacket that also talk? Also love the inclusion of the Super VHS deck.

I thought the future portrayed in the movie was purposely full of unrealistic stuff, so that the writers could have more fun with it.
