It's a regional variant. If you can't see any difference as to CPU, RAM, HDD etc. then they are functionally identical.

that are specific for one chain. Then Walmart can have another variant than Bestbuy, both in the USA.

I forgot that one. The reason for chain specific models is simple. Since the chain has its own model number they can claim it's the lowest price for that model.

I know HP used to use something similar to this

using the example X205T would be the model available on HP website which would be configurable and the one with the similar like X205TA would be basically the same model but not configurable that was sold at Best Buy. Best Buy isn't allowed to modify the configurations of the OEM computers Pre-Sale. Now if the customer wanted to add memory or change the hardware configuration it would be a post sale high priced upgrade by the geek squad.
