    "Preferre" is a good name for a Mediterranean woman, but not for a grey, aluminium computer. So I just call mine whatever it's written on them - MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. When I had one, I just called it 'my computer'. I think that was rather clever of me.

    I use mac, because it's one syllable; as such, it rolls off the toungue better :)

    The age question is irrelevant to the question. This is a "lighthearted" thread. Don't take it so seriously. Just for fun. :)

    Mac, macbook or anything similar. We also have a Windows laptop which refer to as the 'laptop'.

    BlackBook.

    Though I find it hard pronouncing the capital B in the Book bit. It comes out just like a lower case b would sound. But so does the B in the Black bit.

    Maybe it's because though I write the name as "BlackBook", when I say it, I'm actually saying Blackbook or even blackbook.

    The iMac is called the iMac, the iPad - iPad, and the white macbook is referred to as "the mac" or sometimes "the white mac", or even by my dear wife simply as the laptop, though that does send a shiver down my spine.

    When I watch porn I call it Tiffany

    When I use it for work it's called Macbook PRO (emphasis on the "PRO")

    When I use it for personal stuff, it's called "ma mac"

    When it's playing Regaton on max volume, it's called "ratatata-mac"

    When it does something that a windows pc can't, it's called "MacDaddy"

    When I can't figure something out on it, I call it "%#@$&#%# apple"

    I think that's about it.
