Help Me Find My Mac

Enter the serial number for your Mac below and press submit. You can find your serial number on a sticker on your Mac, or by going Apple Menu > About This Mac, then clicking the More Info button. This brings up System Profiler, and on the Hardware Overview that is displayed by default you should see your serial number, and be able to copy/paste it. You can also locate your Mac from its Model Identifier with our Model ID picker.

PowerMac G4 MDD

PowerMac G4
FireWire 800

PowerMac G4 FireWire 800

The PowerMac G4 FireWire 800 has a very similar case, and the same twin CD bays, as the Dual Optical.

Its main distinguishing features is the presence of FireWire 800 ports, as opposed to FireWire 400 on the earlier machine.

PowerMac G4
Dual Optical

PowerMac G4 Dual Optical

The PowerMac G4 Dual Optical was the first G4 PowerMac to accept a second optical drives, as opposed to a Zip drive.

The distinctive four air intakes on the front of the machine are only present on this machine, and the later FW 800 model.

PowerMac G4 (133MHz bus)

PowerMac G4
Quicksilver 2002

PowerMac G4 Quicksilver 2002

The PowerMac G4 Quicksilver 2002 was released late 2001/early 2002. This machine has the same distinctive silver case as the first Quicksilver, without the four front-panel air intakes of the 167MHz bus machines.

The 2002 version of the Quicksilver was released in single 800MHz and 933MHz, and dual 1GHz configurations.

Quicksilver

PowerMac G4 Quicksilver

The PowerMac G4 Quicksilver was the first PowerMac to come in the silver case that Apple used for the later G4 PowerMacs. Unlike the 167MHz bus machines it doesn't have four air intakes on the front panel.

The case is identical to the Quicksilver 2002. However this earlier Quicksilver was released in single 733MHz and 867MHz, and dual 800MHz configurations.

PowerMac G4
Digital Audio

PowerMac G4 Digital Audio

The PowerMac G4 Digital Audio was released in 466MHz, 533MHz, 667MHz, 733MHz and dual 533MHz configurations. It was the last G4 produced in the older graphite case.

The Digital Audio was the only graphite PowerMac sold with these specific clock speeds - however there was a 733MHz Quicksilver.

PowerMac G4 (100MHz bus)

PowerMac G4 Cube

PowerMac G4 Cube

The G4 Cube was a unique take on the PowerMac G4. Housed in an 8"x8"x10" cube, the G4 Cube was a fully-functional PowerMac, but with the styling of Apple's consumer level machines.

PowerMac G4 AGP
Dual Processor

PowerMac G4 AGP Dual CPU

This page is for any dual processor PowerMacs in both the AGP Graphics and Gigabit Ethernet ranges.

Please see this page if you have any dual processor PowerMac in the graphite case rather than the silver of the Quicksilver and later machines

PowerMac G4 AGP
Single Processor

PowerMac G4 AGP Single CPU

The single processor AGP Graphics and Gigabit Ethernet PowerMacs were released in 350MHz, 400MHz, 450MHz and 500MHz configurations. The case is the standard graphite of the early G4 PowerMacs.

The PowerMac G4 PCI Graphics (right) was also released in 350MHz and 400MHz configurations. One way to distinguish between the two models is to check the audio ports on the rear panel - on the AGP Graphics/Gigabit Ethernet machines these will be aligned vertically.

PowerMac G4
PCI Graphics

PowerMac G4 PCI Graphics

The PowerMac G4 PCI Graphics was released in 350MHz and 400MHz configurations, in the same graphite case as the rest of the early G4 PowerMacs.

The AGP Graphics was also released in 350MHz and 400MHz configurations. A method of distinguishing between them is to check the audio ports on the rear panel. On the PCI Graphics the ports will be aligned horizontally. Be sure to check your processor speed too, since the Digital Audio also has horizontally aligned audio ports.
