    Specs:
    Mac Mini Core i7 2012 | White 2009 MacBook 2 Ghz | 733 Mhz G4 Quicksilver
    Its not a G4, G3 or G5 model (all of which were processors from Motorola or IBM)

    Yours is a much more modern Intel based mac

    The G moniker refers to the older PowerPC processor based macs, before Apple migrated over to Intel chips
