    Similar in what way? Performance? P4 would be my guess.

    Probably Pentium 3 and below. Pentium 4 would be a little beyond what a G4 could offer in terms of CPU speed and equivalent features. May I ask why you want to know?

    I was just curious. Also, would Core Duo blow PPC G4 away?

    Yes. Barefeats did a comparison of the minis and even the Core Solo was faste than the G4. Or was it someone else that did the test?

    EDIT: It was priamtelabs that did the test.
