The 2nd Generation Apple TV has a rated 0.3 amp current draw. That's only 20% of the amperage drawn by its square unibody cousin, the Mac Mini. Once we get inside, the internal power supply should tell us its real draw.
Apple has branded the model number as A1378.
Check out all those scratches near the power socket! They were the result of wiping off dust with a microfiber cleaning cloth, so it's no surprise that the Apple TV is shipped with a strip of black tape stuck around its perimeter. Presumably, Apple used low density plastic for the case to aid in the transmission of infrared, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth signals at the expense of scratch resistance.
