  AFIK all of the MDS2xxs (including the blue ones) are series II machines.
I've never heard of anything that Intel designated as a Series I. Most of
the Series II machines have blue cases but some of them have white cases.
The white ones are thought to be later machines but no one knows for sure.
Just to further confuse the issue, ANY of the MDS2xxs can be upgraded to
series III by adding a 8086 Resident Processor Card. I believe the MDS800s
can also be upgraded to Series III the same way.
