    I'm getting either a 13' or 15' Macbook Pro, and I'm planing to name her Beatrice.

    I've been reading Dante's Divine Comedy, and i think a beautiful computer should get a beautiful name.

    Beatrice is the great love of the Pilgrim in the epic poem.

    Anyone else name their Macs? Or am i just weird?

    Other names for random objects include my guitar named Othello (he's made of mahogany which is a dark wood) and i had a Dell named Icarus once... Cause it crashed so many times... Get it?

    The name for your Dell laptop is actually totally hilarious! :)

    MRoogle is a great place to search for answers before posting.

    Beatrice is cool though.

    and 13" or 15", not 13' or 15'. otherwise it would have to be named gheorghe muresan.

    No offense but Beatrice is probably one of the ugliest names I've ever heard.

    on the contrary, i think it's a lovely name.

    I could have gone with Agnes or Gertrude...

    Big Uncle Elroy, anyone? Or how about a generic name, like Steve.

    Shambo is gunna be here the second he sees this, and fill this thread with fail, with his "Bad Boy Pro" BS. I can't wait for that. Anyway, I am not sure about naming the laptop, I personally dont understand the practice, but Beatrice doesn't sound right to me. It doesn't seem pretty enough in my view, if you are going with the whole beauty thing.

    Though some of you may feel otherwise, a computer is an appliance for doing things... whether it be work or play.

    Anthropomorphisizing these machines is not warranted. I love my MacBook Air because of what I can do with it, not because of what it is or how it makes me feel (ok, maybe a little, but I still don't think it's right to name it!).

    It does indeed make a lot of sense to take great pride in your belongings (this helps you appreciate and look after them), and certainly the practicalities of naming your hardware is logical especially if it is distributed throughout a wireless home network. See attached.

    Doesn't seem very future-proofed to me.

    there really isn't any such thing as future-proofing. Things always get better. I think the only way to make a piece of technology last is taking good care of it.

    Is this shambo a robot? i feel like there's a joke i'm just not getting.

    There's definitely a joke..... consider yourself fortunate that you don't get it.

    +1 vote. Actors can read (or they should) - they should be able to spell too! :eek:

    I think anything with literary roots gets a free pass.

    I've never had the habit of naming my gadgets but I've had a lot of people ask me what I intend to name my future 13" MBP when they find out I'm "expecting".

    Unfortunately, I'm not inspired, creative or even well-read as you.
