    The old Black MacBook was often dubbed as "BlackBook". Has "GlassBook" been accepted as slang for the new MacBook or is it more of an "unwanted" word like iTouch?

    I've also heard "AlumiBook" but I don't like that one.

    What do you call the new MacBook?

    By definition, I doubt that any slang can be official.

    I like that: GlassBook

    Sounds right.

    Also I like what a poster above me mentioned several posts ago...

    MacBook Pro Mini, it fits...lets look at the facts,

    iPod -> iPod Mini or iPod Nano
    iMac -> Mac Mini
    MacBook Pro -> MacBook Pro Mini or GlassBook

    Personally I go with GlassBook or Al MacBook

    I prefer calling it what it is -- a MacBook. That's what it says on my MacBook. It doesn't say GlassBook, AlumiBook, or anything else.

    Personally I look at people who call it a GlassBook as if they are retarded, because that's how it sounds.

    I prefer Glassbook if I am to differentiate those two new Macbooks from the older ones, just like I called the titanium Powerbook "TiBook".

    However, If we know we're talking about the glassbooks only, I call the smaller one Macbook, and the bigger MacBook (the one they call "Pro", lol) 15" MacBook, or MB 15", or even MacBook FW (for firewire).
    It certainly isn't a pro anything.

    Oh, totally off topic, but I just saw the Nagra LB today! :D

    Stupid if you ask me...
    I mean it doesnt really classify the product does it? like BlackBook did!

    For now, MacBook or MB is great.....

    At first I thought you were being sarcastic and laughed a little. But that last part says you were serious? You really think that "BlackBook" classify the product more than "Glassbook" does? :eek:

    Yep.... as much as the term 'Apple' classifies Apple Inc or Malus domestica

    LOL

    No it was all in sarcasm... shouldve used my <sarcasm></sarcasm> thingies!

    for everyone that says just macbook. Here on the forums we tend to need to know what model it is. Terms like blackbook ran wild. No doubt we will adopt something over time.

    Glassbook sounds about right

    I like glassbook. It is a quick way of telling peeps where you are. It sure would be a pain if everytime i had to say MB 5th Gen, and Most people don't know that means Late 2008 MacBook.

    Thats a new slang (my new "Late 08 MB")

    I never really felt that glassbook fit the way that blackbook did.

    My blackbook, Madeleine (that's her name), is 'dead sexy.' The girlfriend loathes her.

    What about:

    1. MiniPro
    2. AlumBook (that has that nice refined sound like Powerbook + Alumni)
    3. DentBook
