    I just typed "sysctl hw" in the term of my 800mhz iBook, and got :

    hw.machine = Power Macintosh
    hw.model = PowerBook4,3

    Just thought this was interesting.
    I figured that apple would have given
    each a different designation. Guess
    "iBook" is hidden in the "4,3" part.

    Xserve's are named "RackMac 1,1"

    What are iMacs and eMacs model #s?

    My iMac 700 is:
    hw.machine= Power Macintosh
    hw.model = PowerMac4,2

    So I wouldn't read much into it.
