Both are 120GB models because starting with the PS3 Slim, the harddrive size is designated by an appended letter after the region code (in this case A=120GB, and B=250GB).

The PS3 Slim models uses PSP model naming nomenclature, 10xx, 20xx, 30xx, so a second generation PS3 (Slim) is CECH-20xx.In television, because of the limitation of early analog signals (inclusive of converting digital to analog), using the full range of values in 8 bits (0-255) to represent each of the RGB primary colors left problems in the display.To compensate for these problems, the full range of values was limited to 16-235 instead of 0-255.A first generation Japanese 60GB PS3 would thus be designated CECHA00, while the one in North America would be designated CECHA01.A second generation 120GB Japanese PS3 Slim would be designated CECH-2000A, while the 120GB North American Slim PS3 would be designated CECH-2001A.
