According to Mactracker both of the USB 1 17" iMacs use the GeForce4

  IMO EveryMac.com gives more  info than Matracker on all the Macs.
According to EveryMac.com Jeff's explaination is spot on.

I agree that EveryMac has more information, I just find a local database to be convenient.

Of course now it's a matter of determining which database is correct.


I have Mactracker too but for in-depth and more models I use Everymac daily and it seems to be updated by the minute In fact I can use it for a lot of info Apple keeps close to home, such as RAM specs and system specs.

Like Jeff's identifying factors are they're the same I use often when serial numbers don't work, that's not to say an individual didn't swap out some parts. Video cards can be a giveaway in a lot of machines.:-)
