    i recently received my MBP back from apple after various hard failures. During the process of Apple imaging my data back on to my mac, it seems the computer name has changed. Can i change this back to what it was? i appear ot able to change it to something new, but not back.

    in system/sharing i can change the computer name, but when i go to mobileme settings/sync/advanced the name isnt this one i changed to above, its "apples Macbook Pro - myname"

    ?

    You can change it in system preferences>sharing. It will be at the top of the screen.
