Is there some easy way to detect if it is a 8096 or 8296?

The model numbers are very confusing indeed.  The CBM II or B series was
also known as the CBM 500, 600 and 700 series.  But I guess there
weren't any CBM 600, just 610 (B128-LP) and 620 (B256-LP).

For what it is worth, I also have a CBM 720.  I mostly have
8032-compatibles.  Two rounded ones (CBM 200 and 220) and two
box-shaped ones (8032 and a SuperPET 9000).  Then I have a couple
of B128s (with 110-volt power supply).  The 8032 contains some
expansion board that I haven't been able to identify.
