Define the function that determines the new array

f = If[# < 100, 50, 200]&

Map the function to the original array

f/@ii

As always with Mathematica, there are different ways of doing
something. This is another posibility:

Clear[f];
SetAttributes[f, Listable];
f[x] := If[x < 100, 50, 200];
f[ii]
