About this Mac menu says "Processor=1.8GHz PowerPC G5" so I am assuming it is NOT an Intel processor - correct?
Correct. If a Mac has Power, G3, G4, or G5 in it's name, it doesn't have an Intel CPU.

I don't think that Snow Leopard is going to be a huge advancement over Leopard, so don't feel too left outiMac Al 20" 2.4 Ghz, 3 GB RAM, 12" G4 PB, 15"iMac G4, Cube, 3G iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5.7), 15"iMac G3 DVD, OWC 500GB QuadHD, LaCie 500GB quad

All processors starting with a 'G' are made by IBM (OS8 to OS10.5.x)
All processors starting with 'MC68xxx' are made by Motorola (OS so old now not in use)
Most processors with the words- solo, duo or quad are made by Intel (OS10.4.x to ?)
Hope thats a little bit clearer ?
