    My cousin has had her MB HD replaced and they have reinstalled SL - albeit not very well.

    The repair wasnt done via Apple as its a 2007 machine .. anyway ..

    Her username has been set as mymacbook - so thats what appears in her finder window ..

    How do i change this to Becky's Macbook

    Thanks!

    System Preferences -> Sharing -> Computer Name

    Edit: Wait a minute, are you talking about the name of the home folder (the user short name), the name of the hard drive or the name of the computer?
