    Hi guys, I am about to ship an iBook laptop off. I don't have any personal information on my computer, but when I log in, it says "[My Name]'s iBook G4." I kind of want to get rid of that, since I don't know who will be using this laptop.

    Is there some way I can change this?

    You could just reinstall OS X from the install disk and make up some dummy name. The person receiving it will probably do the same to configure the system to their liking.

    System Preferences -> Sharing. It's at the top of that screen.

    Better solution :eek:

    I wasn't sure if you'd done a reinstall already or not.
