I'll say it is the Internal Store memory, not the DRAM memory shown there.
To know if you have a MP2100, here are some criterions.
Physically, there is the sticker as Victor said.

For software checks:
- the best: Gestalt(kGestalt_SystemInfo).RAMSize should say 4 MB

Other one: NewtonScript heap increase: you'll need the latest system
update (710031) or the previous one (back to 1997!) 717260.

- If you experienced the -10061 bug, you have a MP2100
- Restart without any package, get the NS Heap free memory (with
utilities such as Avi's BD). Don't know exaclty what you should have,
(in fact, it depends on what's on the stores and the utility) but I
think it should be around 400 KB. Anyway, you can compare on both
machines. It should be significantly smaller on the MP2000.
