I'm sorry, but the "Pentium" name hasn't meant much since the first RAMBUS packing 1.4 Ghz CPU came out back in '01 and has generally dissapointed since.

 These days, I acsosiate "Pentium" with "old, slow, runs hotter than hell".  If it's a rebadged Core 2, just call it a "Core 2".

That is how Insmel hit it's one billionth motherboard sales mark! Everytime it releases a new proc, it releases a new mobo to go with it! So whether you buy a retail mobo or an oem type notebook/netbook, it's considered a mobo sale. *uckers.

Pentium needs to die, name and processor.

Clearly I'm stupid, go cry with your outdated processor and use the tears to liquid cool it.  Ignorant fool.

now now childern, they WERE decent, AMD's were better at the time, but now we have Excellent Core2's and i7's, i personnaly dont see a need to bring back the name. its like if Microsoft named windows 7 something else, like "Vista II" even if it was great, i dont think it would sell as well as another name would.       -Denis

At the end of the day, a name ia a name. It's the numbers that count. By that, I mean benchmarks.
