the far right bottom beige unit is a Cromemco System Three beast, and 
the blue box above it is an Intel MDS800

the "terminal" on top of the Vector MZ in the middle background was just 
a crt+keyboard, attached to said Vector MZ's internal video card

I'm pretty sure the big square terminal in the middle foreground behind 
the phone is a Soroc (anagram for Coors)

The terminal on the table to the left was a Televideo, I dont remember 
the number, and the computer next to it is a early sample of a Tarbell 
S100 system.

All of these ran CP/M-80, as I was working at Digital Research on CP/M 
innards.   Most of them had the max 64kbyte memory their 2 or 4Mhz 8 bit 
CPUs could address, and 2 or 4 diskette drives that held anywhere from 
256K to 1MB each.
