Default Pentium M Pins

http://processorfinder.intel.com/scr...+on+selections

I'm getting mixed answers from this spreadsheet. How many pins does a Pentium M have? 478 or 479?

You've got to count them . I guess it's similar to 939/940 differences... it's all in the last pin :P

Well that is very strange because not only is there one more pin, but BGA stands for Ball Grid Array, which is a completely different socket interface

BGA has shorter pins. I know about that.

Still, the board will run with that since it says socket 479.
