    Hi All,

    Just a quick question. I've been given a Mac which i thought was a PowerMac G3. I've looked in the "about my apple" in OSX and it says the following:

    Machine Model: Power Mac G3 (PCI Graphics)
    CPU Type: PowerPC G4

    Is this normal for this machine, or, does it mean that its had an upgrade to the G4. After typing this it seems pretty obvious that its an upgrade but think i'll still ask incase its different in the world of Mac :)

    thanks!

    Probably an upgrade.

    What does it look like? Photo? Maybe we can tell from that?

    It has the Yosemite motherboard carried over from the G3.

    The PM G4 350mhz was the second revision G4 after Motorola had trouble producing 500Mhz G4 chips. It is the slowest G4 Apple ever made, slower than the 400Mhz G4 model initially introduced in the fall of 1999.
