Mac Specs: 12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)

The MDD G4 1.25 was exactly where the line was drawn, as you've probably learned. The first 1.42 GHz machines were OS X-only. And yes, the "new" 1.25GHz G4s introduced alongside the 1.42GHz models were also OS X only. So you can't be sure just by looking at the CPU speed.

Low End Mac notes that FireWire 800 was introduced at the same time, and suggests that you use the presence of FW800 to distinguish the OS X-only G4s from the OS 9-compatible ones.
