As far as I saw on the HP site HP 4570c doesn't have the ADF unit, HP
5550c (similar model) has. Anyway, the whole product family -
4570/5550/5590/7650 seems to be different only in mechanics and
available accessories. I could even suppose that we could add HP
4500/5500 to the list. 4500/5550 have ADF, 4570/5550 - APF.

This name I've got from HP site, so it's their positioning. You could
choose any name which is meaningful for the scanner. The names and
corresponding core is informational and could even be removed.
