How come in Apple TV's specifications it just says Intel Processor but not Pentium M?

    Because Apple doesn't consider it necessary information. They don't disclose the iPod or iPhone processor either. Not to mention, Intel ceased production on the Pentium M processor in 2008. For all we know, it's whatever Intel gives them (Dothan variant, clock speed may vary, down-clocked to 1Ghz, etc).

    You would think Intel would run out of Dothan processors eventually, though.

    It doesn't really matter, it's not like you are going to install programs on it and need to know if the processor is powerful enough.

    I thought it was because when laptops were using Pentium M Apple was still using PowerPC processors and they said PowerPC G3 was way better. But now they are using Pentium M on Apple TV so they are being a hypocrite.

    Was this thread entirely a long-winded flamebait?

    A thread is a collection of messages forming a conversation.

    Something is long-winded if it is of a longer-than-normal length so as to be more tedious than usual.

    Flamebait is internet slang for a post designed to infuriate its audience.
