But... aren't those Model F units at 1:40?

I believe so. At 1:07 I think we have MicroSwitch with the IBM 129 punches and at 3:13 are IBM 3036 consoles with a keyboard which I have no idea if they are beamspring or not.

Thanks for posting that video. I need to make a room of my apartment look like that place. Play the soundtrack to "War Games" as you watch the video for the full effect.
