proud owner of a new powerbook g4 1.5ghz

As anyone else noticed this?

open a terminal and type hostinfo,

the readout says the cpu type is powerpc 7450....

i was expecting it to say 7447A (or B)

anyone able to explain?

    It simply means our cpu type is a "Power PC 7450".

    Yes but, Freescale does not like a 7450. Unless i am missing something. Just would like to read up on the hardware....a bit geeky i know

    If your new 1.5GHz Prbk is a 12-inch with SuperDrive, would you please tell me which OS version/build number it has?
