A 17" Superdrive iMac G5 Rev A has a 1.8Ghz processor + 256MB RAM.
A 17" Superdrive iMac G5 Rev B has a 2.0Ghz processor + 512MB RAM + Airport Card + Bluetooth installed.

Hope this helps

the IMac im looking at for my sister is a 20inch 1.8ghz g5 no air port or bluetooth 160gb hard drive and 512mb ram. So it looks like it's a rev a IMac.

If you can I would take it to 10.4.3.

Also I would check the price out because the new macs offer even better value for money.
Unless you are getting a good price I would go for a new one due to the fact you have more bang for your buck and 1 years warranty.

Hope this helps
