Hello All,

I just bought a new macbook pro, with Mountain Lion.
As the first user log on first, my macbook pro got her name, like "macbook pro de renata". So, when I use bluetooth, my name is "macbook pro de renata".

How can I change this???

Thanks a lot.

Since the OP probably has a newer OS on that MBP, this is the OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion sub-forum afterall, using software written for 10.4 and earlier and being stated as not compatible with 10.5 probably should be avoided due to architectural changes.
Requirements
PPC / Intel, Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or earlier. (Can be used with Mac OS X 10.2 using the included Terminal script.) NOTE: The current version, 1.3, is NOT compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard); an update will be released.
