    I've noticed posters on here referring to their systems by their code/model name. I bought my PB in August and got all the upgrades. (My sister-in-law works for apple and got me the discount). What is this bad boy's AKA?

    "Q41A"

    No idea how Apple came up with that... ;)

    What??! I thought it was going to be something like "Pinstripes" or "Riverview".

    Yeah, yours has a rather boring codename. :)

    "Q" has been used before. So has "Q41" I think...

    For most PowerBooks, it is either an Aluminum PowerBook (AlBook) or a Titanium PowerBook (TiBook).

    The code names are mostly for the G4 PowerMacs, and a few G3 ones. Quicksilvers, Yikes!, etc. are all easy reference for G4s.
