    Prototype? No... just a liar. :p

    Look at the freaking About This Mac screen! It even says G4!

    Report it for fraud.

    The screenshot clearly says it's a PowerPC 1.5 G4.

    I sent the seller a question on it. It could be an honest mistake.

    Well as for prototype there was a MacBook Pro prototype going by the name of PowerBook(I so wish they still called them PowerBooks today, such a cool name for a notebook right?)

    Heres the thread:Is this a Powerbook/Macbook Pro prototype?

    That's just somebody who doesn't know what they're talking about. It happens a lot.

    Seller responded to my questions. Said it was just a mistake as they were posting a few notebooks. I would assume they will fix it now.

    You mean a PowerBook G5? IBM never designed any laptop chips for Apple. iirc

    lol, sorry, was it motorola who made the mobile chips then.

    btw that was my feeble attempt at a joke because IBM and Intel sound a like. Even i dont get it.
