    Okay I admit in times of weakness, and much to the ire of others on here, I call mine the Badboy Pro but what's your's called?

    Nope, haven't given mine any sort of nickname apart from the standard "Mac," "MacBook," "laptop," etc.

    Brand New is your favorite band? You must not listen to any music, past or present ...

    NO.

    The only computer that I have ever known to have a nickname was my buddy's old toshiba back in college. It was really slow and awful so we made a joke about it. We called it "Socrates" since it spent all day thinking :D

    No name for the Mac Pro but I call my Macbook Air 'Penis' because when I whip it out the girls love it.

    So, your command line prompt is "shambo@Badboy Pro"?

    My MBP is called swoop. Not so much a nickname, but I just wanted to name it something other than "<user name>'s Macintosh".

    My main PC is grimlock. Yeah, it's a difficult pattern to figure out.

    Uhh, so do you name *all* of your gadgets after transformers, just on the off chance that one day they actually come alive?

    I just can't get over the fact that you named your MBP a BadBoy Pro, that must be the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. I do not nick name any of my electronics, they are inanimate objects, I like to keep it that way.

    I don't understand, what is so "idiotic" about taking pleasure in something I worked hard to obtain? I don't tell others they're idiots because they live differently to me, so why should you?

    MacBook Pro - Sophie
    Airport extreme - Adèle
    iPhone - Jane

    Why? Network identification is oh so ez. The girlfriend actually named my MBP, the other two are chahracters from a 19th century novel (Jane Eyre)

    to give you an idea of the immense creativity I have , our cat is named "Kitty".
    But op there is another rather large thread for gadget nicknames on these boards. I'm sure it still has activity.

    it's a computer and it is a tool for education, having fun, and making the world a better place. why would you name something that is not living?
