Is a G4 800 mhz worth 200 more than a g3 900?

What about optical drives?

Do they both come with the exact same OS?

Yes, get the G4. More and more apps take advantage of/require the Altivec "engine" (for lack of the proper term) that the G4 has.

Yep, G4 is a significantly faster CPU.

Actually clock for clock in non-Altivec enhanced tasks the G3 is a bit faster than the G4 (it runs cooler than the G4 too).
