Picked up this 400MHz "PCI" Powermac G4. System profiler says this is a "Powermac G3" but it is in a G4 case with a G4 processor. Not sure what this thing is. Did apple just not bother to change the system Id?
Sorry about the image. Guess it's not my lucky day.
just reading the system Profiler Rev 2.6 G4... do you mind taking the heatsink off and grabbing a picture of the CPU for me please? in regards to the system profiler shot as bunn says its completely normal just a fun little "typo" apple left
You'd also have to knock out the place for it. I don't remember offhand if it's stamped into the case or not, but I expect it is.
With that said, if you need/want ADB and a G4 you're better off with an upgraded B&W IMO.
Also, I love my ADB peripherals, but the one significant need I see for a real ADB port(as opposed to USB) is for a software HASP. AFAIK, all of the software I have that needs an ADB HASP can't use Altivec so a fast G3 is usually as good as a G4.
