    I have two Macs, I call my PowerBook G4 "Lucifer", while I call my MacBook Marklar.

    So what do you call your Mac? :)

    Well my friend calls mine a Quackintosh, but that's just cause he's a Window user. :eek: :p

    To me, it's a computer.
    My boyfriend refers to it as "the-relationship-breaker". I have no idea why :confused::p

    My iPod is the Captain of my Love Boat.
    My MBP is my Sexy Beast.
    My HP laptop was a fanciful combination of four-letter-words.

    My Macs have generic names, too. "The iMac" and "The Macbook" and rarely "Blackbook". Most of my friends call it "The Mac" Or "The Apple" because they have never seen another Mac.

    My computers are as follows:

    MBP - Apollo, keeping in line with my sky themes.
    iMac G4 - Flagship (also my WiFi network name).
    PowerMac G4 - Clockwork. Its secondary internal HD is Vault.
    PowerBook G4 - Mercury, or informally, Sir Woz (due to the fact it's signed by Steve Woz).

    My 20GB 3G iPod is Aurora.
    My 250GB FW External is Horizon.

    It's a bit funny when I actually reference one of my machines by the above names and a few select friends know what exactly I mean... Things like: "Hey, I used Clockwork last night for all this Photoshoppin'. Gotta Love Panther's speed on that tower!"
