I don't think you can as they don't print the firmware anywhere on the packaging.

It seems that if you buy one from somewhere that may have stock lying around in a warehouse you have a good chance that it will be pre-3.42, my m8 got one from The Hut for £229 for the 120gb version and it came with v2.72 firmware, but his sone got one from Argos and it came with v3.42, I have also heard other peeps say that they have had v3.42 on their new PS3's.

Just treated myself to a 320gb ps3 out of tesco at silverburn.
I was happy to get it home and it had firmware 3.40 on it :D
