Can you find out the PowerMac model through a serial #?

    Hi -

    Is it possible to find a site (or through Apple) that tells you the type of model a computer is by its serial number?

    Reason I ask is that I need a Gigabit Ethernet model G4, and for the 400MHz variety, they made three revs. Only the "Mystic" model has Gigabit Ethernet.

    Or perhaps someone else knows a way to determine 10/100/1000 BaseT capability through a physical examination -- ?

    on the back of the powermac where it lists the specs of the computer it should specify whether it has 10/100 or 10/100/1000

    The ADC port (on the gigabit) is a dead giveaway. Unless the video card's been upgraded.
