From the FAQ (http://newtonfaq.com/newton-faq-hardware.html#IIA1h)

h. How do I tell an original MessagePad 2000 from an upgraded model?

The main difference is the amount of DRAM installed in the device. To check this, tap the “i” button in Extras and select “Memory Info”. An original MessagePad 2000 will show approximately 1 MB (~916 KB) of System RAM installed. An upgraded MessagePad 2000 will show approximately 4 MB (~3,980 KB) of System RAM installed.

Also, if Apple upgraded the MessagePad 2000, there should be a sticker next to the Interconnect port that reads “MP2100”.
