Open the System Profiler in your Utilities folder. The machine information will include information such as the following:
Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro1,1
Processor Name: Dual-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
Number Of Processors: 2
Total Number Of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB
Memory: 4 GB
Bus Speed: 1.33 GHz
The information after Model Identifier will tell you which generation and the model within the generation. 1,1 means first generation, first model; 2,1 would mean second generation, first model. The Early 2009 (newest) model should be 4,1. There have been thus far four generations: Mid 2006, Mid 2007, Early 2008, and Early 2009.
All Intel Macs are similarly identified.
The currently made MacBooks can accommodate at least 6 GBs of RAM, although the Unibody MacBook Pro is supposed to accommodate 8 GBs. However, I don't know that anyone has reported they have successfully installed 8 GBs.
If your work requires FireWire ports then you will need the White MacBook or a MacBook Pro. Unibody MacBooks do not have a FireWire port.
Oh, and I'm the guy you insulted not the other way around. You simply have a problem listening.
