    How many prongs is the firewire cord in these machines? 4 or 6? I bought a 4 prong cable today.

    All Macs (that have FireWire) have 6 pin Firewire 400 ports. Some also have Firewire 800 ports (more than 6 pin).

    The computers have 6-prong firewire ports so they can power peripherals.

    Alright, I'll just return it then and get the 6 pin.
