    Alrighty. I recently began painting my old Ti Powerbook white, and it kinda looks like a non-plastic, widescreen iBook now. It's not done yet, but it's going to have some off-white flames on the cover, as well.

    Anyways, I need a name for it! I want to write a name for it where the old "Powerbook G4" was.

    Anybody have any ideas? The project won't be done for a few days still, but I'll try to get some pics of the "in-between" stages up if it'll help spur the imagination.

    Remember, all white, with some whitish flames on the back.

    Oh, and please no whining about me painting the computer, or saying how great they look in the original color. Just name ideas!

    So far there have been a lot of... interesting suggestions. Keep in mind, though, I don't want the name to be too long, so that I can fit it in around the same area as the original "Powerbook G4".

    Thanks!

    I ditched it. I suppose you could slap an "A" in there instead.. some anti-l33t whatneverness..

    PoboA Gowerk.

    Sounds like an STD.

    It burns when I pee and the doctor told me I had a nasty case of Poboa Gowerk. I musta picked it up in Tijuana. I KNEW that donkey show was too good to be true! Man, I hope this penicillin works..

    Bill. James. Sara. Fredrick. Samson. Howard. Sally. Jane. Andrew. Francis.

    All are acceptable. "Computer" also works quite well.

    How about Lappy? That's what I call mine.

    Or sometimes "Powerbook", or "The Powerbook".

    Or (The lack of) Power Book ...

    (Excuse my sarcasm :rolleyes: ;) )
