  At the moment, I name desktops after guitar amps - my main machines are 
bluesbreaker and ac30.  I rather fancy a G5, it sort of looks as if it 
would be appropriate for 'bassman'.  Spent a week or two using a 
resurrected Celeron 1GHz named pignose, but that was a dog ;)

  Call me a literalist stick-in-the-mud, but my ibooks have been named 
after varieties of apples (current one is egremont).

  No doubt I'll come up with a different plan in the future, I used to 
name them after characters in the 'If...' cartoon.
