Well it looks like the "1 and 7" theory is broken, or at least bent. There is a 6 in with the white cpu 40s which means that 1 and 7 aren't the only numbers they can be. And there are a couple 1s in other groups, so having the number start with a one doesn't necessarily mean anything.

All of the white consoles listed that start with 7 are still cpu 40s.

It looks like at the very least, there is a trend between the first number and the model, but with enough exceptions to make it difficult to tell from the outside as of yet.

@cheese Did you happen to notice a font difference in the words "serial number" between the different models? I only have a small number to compare, but it seems like the 40s have thinner letters.

I have a couple 01s that have the thinner font, but for the most part it seems like the thinner font is pretty accurate

This is the first white cpu 60 I've come across, and it follows both indicators of being a rev 40 (serial number starts with 7 and the font is very thin).
