Every Enterprise-badged Ultra 1 I've ever seen has had hme Ethernet, a
UPA slot, and fast+wide SCSI.  The "Enterprise" just means "no
framebuffer" because it was marketed as a server.

The best indicator (aside from peeking inside) is the code on the rear
of the system.  If it's A11, it's the older unit with narrow SCSI, le
Ethernet, and sbus only.  If it's A12, it's the newer unit with
fast+wide SCSI, hme Ethernet, 2 sbus slots, and one UPA slot.
