Ok, getting to the point. I just noticed on my iMac G5 (10.4.4) that it says for Machine Model: PowerMac8,1. For Machine Name it says iMac G5, which seems right, and it has the PowerPC G5 chip. I was just wondering if this is normal or not. My PB says powerbook5,4. again, seems right. I was just wondering if this is normal, and if its not, if it could affect the machine in any way, or if nothing will happen. I can't see where it could affect the machine except if apple did something with the serial number and it said i had a powermac, when i really had an iMac, and all of the confusion it would cause me. thanks!
