Hey, someone correct this: "All models were sold in dual processor configurations running at 867 MHz, 1 GHz or 1.25 GHz." I've got a 1GHz machine with only one processor...

Shouldn't this really be moved to Power Macintosh G4? Dan 17:31, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

IIRC Apple changed to Power Mac with the first G4s - B&W G3s were still called Power Macintosh though. 19:13, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi there, I think the wording around the top graphic and/or the graphic itself should be changed. At the top of the image's box it says "Power Mac G4" and shows a picture of a Graphite G4, and below that it says

The "Graphite" Power Mac G4
Type: Desktop
Developer: Apple Computer
Released: August 31, 1999
Discontinued: 9 June 2004
Processor(s): single or dual PowerPC G4, 350 - 1420 MHz

which, overall, is misleading, since the Mac in the picture was not manufactured for the whole time, nor was it available at those speeds. Maybe there could be a pic of all G4 models together, and then give the Graphite its own pic where the Graphites are discussed?

New Photo[edit]

  • I know a new picture was requested for this machine, so I took this one. It might not be any better than the first, but just a suggestion. MarshallKe 03:07, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Here are a couple I've uploaded:

However, something with the lighting or camera recolored it a bit; it looks more bondi blue than graphite. I'll fix it tomorrow in Photoshop, but if anyone wants to beat me to it, go ahead.

Also, they've got proposal in the name right now, until we decide whether or not to delete them. --Audacitor 06:37, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Binary prefixes[edit]

Recently changes have been made to this article to use binary prefixes (KiB, MiB, kibibyte, mebibyte etc). The majority of reliable sources for this article do not use binary prefixes. If you have any thoughts/opinions then this specific topic is being discussed on the following talk page Manual of Style (dates and numbers) in the sections to do with "binary prefixes".

first apple gigabit[edit]

which chipset/network chip was used in this first apple product with gigabit speed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:11, 23 April 2009 (UTC)


There's no mention of its nickname ?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:26, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

so few referencies for further reading?[edit]

It would be super usefull if article would have at least link to 2-3 relevant sources of information and discussion boards on PowerMac G4s...with next release of MacOSX 10.6 they will become defunct and guess unsuported, so info on runing/maintaing/upgrading these will be much needed for existing users! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zblace (talkcontribs) 08:12, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
