    Yes, they have definitely gone with "Mac" as the preferred name since years ago. Mentions of the older name will continue to be sprinkled around because that is necessary for trademark protection.

    We all concluded quite irrefutably that "Macintosh" still has a place, with explanations and examples given. Obviously somebody didn't read past the second post. :rolleyes:

    Both are acceptable. and would be the same.

    "Macintosh" would just be a legacy. "Mac" just sounds more.... hip..

    lol.. however if Finder can't get with it,, then there is something wrong.
