    The computers aren't assigned the names, but rather the intel processors they contain. These processors are officially known by other names such as Core 2 Duo or Xeon, but intel assigns each model a unique code-name, which I believe are the names in which you are referring.

    Do you want a list of all Apple computers, or are you thinking of a specific line (e.g. MacBook or MacBook Pro)?

    Off the top of my head here's what I think the OP wants:

    Core Duo = Yonah (First generation Intel Macs; 32 bit CPUs)

    Core 2 Duo = Merom (Second generation Intel Macs; 64 bit CPUs)
    • Santa Rosa - updated/upgraded chipset (2007 models of MacBook/MacBook Pro)
    • Penryn - latest addition/edition of Core 2 Duo. I don't know much about it.

    Core 2 Extreme - available at CTO/BTO option in iMac 24"

    Xeon - used in the Mac Pro (replacement of the Power Mac G5)

    etc. etc.
