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

PowerPC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
