    I've never heard or read anything like that.

    I don't think so. The 1.42 GHz G4 Mac mini has a 7447B, which has been available up to 1.7 GHz (besides, the 7447A likewise):

    So the 1.5 GHz G4 Mac mini can very well have a genuine (i.e. not overclocked) 1.5 GHz 7447B. To know it for sure one would have to open his 1.5 GHz G4 Mac mini and read what's printed on the CPU ...or find someone who did:

    "Got adventurous this evening with a speed bumped Mini g4. I removed the heat sink and confirmed that the chip was in fact rated for 1.5GHZ and it was."

    And even if the 1.5 GHz was overclocked from 1.42 GHz (which it is not, apparently): There's a difference if Apple did it or somebody else. In the former case the Mac mini would have 64 MiB VRAM, in the latter one it has 32 MiB VRAM.
