Well, I have a //gs prototype. The main difference is that when you turn
mine on there's this annoyingly loud and high-pitched buzz that is
constantly being spewed. Luckily for Apple they fixed that particular bug
before they shipped. It also has a multi-chip ROM board that plugs into
one of the ROM sockets, as opposed to a single ROM in the production
model. When it boots up, it says "Apple BL" on the top line. The
silkscreen markings on the motherboard are different than a production
//gs. There's no copyright for instance (I think). It also came in a //e
case (originally, when I got it it had been transferred to a //gs case).
If you want I can go look at mine again and write down a comparison chart
from my normal //gs like I did with the prototype //c.
