It says it has a superdrive.
Im fairly certain its a G4. Is there any way to tell by the case if its a dual G4?
It's classified as a "QuickSilver" series G4. If it's a single processor system, you can expect the speeds to range from 700 MHz to 1 GHz.
It also uses PC133 memory, but at least it has a lot of expansion room.
You'll find that the QuickSilver series is ~4-5 years old now. It was the last series of Power Mac to utilize non-DDR memory.
Unfortunately no, you're going to have to open the case and find out.
If its running OS 9, I can assume that it's an earlier quicksilver right?
Ive narrowed it down to these models:
Power Mac G4/800 DP "Quicksilver"
Power Mac G4/867 "Quicksilver"
Power Mac G4/933 "Quicksilver"
Power Mac G4/1.0 DP "Quicksilver"
Machine isnt too bad. I could max it out at 1.5GB ram and throw panther on it.
Look on the back of the case, there should be a sticker with the serial number and a short description of what the machine.
They run Tiger like champs. If you want to install a drive > 120 GB, you'll want to purchase a PCI IDE controller, since firmware limitations on QuickSilvers don't recognize drives > 120 GB.
QuickSilvers came with OS 10.1, which also included OS 9.2. It's feasible that the owner didn't want to install OS X back then, since 10.1 was kinda, well...bleh.
thanks, I wanna "soup" this baby up for 10.3.
