Well, I assumed it is a 8296D since it has internal disk drives? As
far as I know, there never was a 8096D model, but I could be wrong.

I believe it should be possible to review the motherboard layout if
it is a 8096, 8296 or 8296D. Number of RAM chips among other things.

True. CBM 600 and PET/CBM 700 rather were family names, like 8000 series.
Actually I might've seen front plates that say either CBM 700, PET 700 or
PET 700/128K, while the back plate should tell the exact model.

For that matter, has anyone ever seen a genuine CBM 620, or were all just
256K upgraded versions of the 610?
