    Apple Cider --- My old Pismo Powerbook G3 400 (I sold it awhile ago)
    Apple Crisp --- My father's Quicksilver 867
    Apple Butter --- My G4 350 tower (arn used to own it... I wonder what he called it :p)

    ... and my main dear is lovingly called Freya (PowerBook 800 DVI)

    I've named all of the macs in my house even if they aren't mine :) Our old graphite airport base station is called Apple Orchard

    I used to stick to a naming scheme (Apple XX) but with the purchase of Freya I sorta left it behind.

    Well...it depends on what I happened to like at that moment...right now I'm obsessed with the Matrix (can't wait until May) and Apple, so all of the servers and computers are named after characters from the Matrix. The laptops and everything else start with the letter 'i'.

    eXtrusion and eXile for OS X partitions.
    Cupboard and Wardrobe for storage.
    Namaste and Regulator are another two mostly because I was listening to more HEVY DEVY (devin townsend / strapping young lad) than is really advisable.:eek:
