    No thats not possible nor is it logical. The G4 was made by the IBM and Motorola and the C2D is made by Intel.

    Who makes the processor is less important than the electronics. In the past IIRC, AMD made drop in replacements for Intel x86 chips.
    And of course, even aside from the processor, the support chips, power supply, RAM, and most everything else need to be Intel versions.
