    Im trying to determine which G4 model I have:
    Ive narrowed it down to two models based on the info I know:
    G4 (Mirrored Drive Doors 2003)
    G4 (FW800)

    The main difference between the two seems to be the processor. The one I have is 1Ghz. The device was purchased in Aug 2003

    Can anyone tell me what I should look for to distinguish between the two.
    In the system profiler it says that the Firewire speed is "up to 800mb/s" does this mean that I have a FW800 model even though o Mactracker it says that it shipped with 1.25Ghz processor? What are the key differences between the two (if any)? and how do I check, as there seems to be conflicting profiles.

    For the Power Mac G4 (FW800), Mactracker has the following processor options;

    1.0, dual 1.25 or dual 1.42 GHz

    I would think that is the model you have, as no other G4 Power Mac had FW800.
