Heres the info on my computer: OS: OSx 10.4.11 Model; PowerPC 4,2 CPU Type: PowerPC G4 2.1 CPU's L2 Cache (Per CPU) 256KB Memory; 256MB Bus Speed; 100MHz Boot Rom Version; 4.5 Of4 HD: 80

Heres my problem. I can't find out what model G4 I have. The only info listed in about this mac is what I've listed. Not listed anywhere on the machine. When I go to Terminal to find out it come up as the following: Welcome to Darwin. It then give the guys name that I purchased the computer from followed by $. It then says Unknown. So I have no idea what series my G4 is and therefore don't know what version of the TenFourFox browser to install. i really want to try TenFourFox but i don't want to run in to problems by downloading and installing the wrong version. I have attached a picture of my computer. Could you please help me determine what version of TenFourFox I should use. Thank you so much. Happy Holidays!

    Hello Dale, your picture doesn't seem to have come through, but I guess we can manage without it. A G4 v2.1 is the 7450 ("G4e") version, if I'm not completely mistaken. That said, the other G4 (or even the G3) version will run without damaging your computer, just a bit slower. However, your Mac is very short on memory with only 256 MB. TenFourFox will probably run with that, but unsupported, and at times will be really slow.
