Why there is a difference between these two?

Why there is a difference between these two?
Hi, please look closely at these pics supposedly taken from 2 different ResMed S9 VPAP AUTO unit's service infos. Why items of info plus return options at the bottom of their screens are different? Their firmware seems to be the same version!!!

Thanks

Al

RE: Why there is a difference between these two?
Hi Al

From the clinician manual:

SW - current software version
BID - boot loader ID
VID - variant ID
RID - regional variant ID
HID - humidifier software ID.

I guess one of them has a humidifier and one doesn't.

The one that is displaying the "VPAP Auto" in the picture has an additional option turned on. Notice the Gears Icon. Also, does either one have a Climateline heated hose attached and other doesn't?
