    Question Do I Have an Intel Mac?
    What's the best/fastest way to tell if you have an Intel Mac or not? I bought this one VERY close to the Intel release date, and was wondering whether or not I COULD (not sure that I wanted too, tho') load the Gates' OS. Thanks for the help.

    If you don't even know what processor you have and don't know how to find out you shouldn't be messing around with bootcamp.

    The "Mac Specs" under your avatar say "Dual 2GHz PowerPC". Is this the same machine?

    "About this Mac" reads Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5.
    I'm guessing I don't have the Intel Mac, since I found a refurb at apple.com that reads, "Intel Xenon...."

    Correct.

    PowerPC is not Intel.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
