Geek Out: Share Your Computer Make/Model

Word on the street is two out of five Japanese women regularly have conversations with their computers, while 10.2 percent of women gave their computer a nickname, such as "Mac-kun," "Pasoko," "Pudding" or my personal favorite, "Princess." If you have a similar relationship with your computer, I'm guessing you want everyone in the world to know all about it. Its quirks, its personality traits, and on occasion, its bad manners.

Share your computer make, model and nickname by bookmarking it and tagging your finds with "my computer." When you bookmark, let me know why you love your computer, major issues you've had with it and of course, what you call it. Then check back to geeksugar next week to see if I featured your computer!

To learn what Geek Gear is and how to bookmark your finds on our site, click here. To see some of my favorite online stores,

I don't have a name for my MacBook, but my husband calls it "the other man" because he swears I pay more attention to it than him! :P

i didn't name my macbook pro (or my desktop or my HP laptop i still use), but i named my wireless Mighty Mouse. his name is "paco." my cubicle-mates have named their MightyMice "philippe" and "petunia." we're having some problems with petunia, however. she seems to have a LOT of PMS...

Erm mine is called Lappy. I can't see myself posting pics of her because her screen is kaput so I've plugged in a LCD screen to it, the keyboard has keys that aren't working so I've added a keyboard and a mouse ... I know I know, I'm gonna let her retire soon :p

posted both of mine in a blog and bookmarks (the blog post has actual pictures of them rather than ones from the internet).

mine is called rockstar #6. this is based on a series of ipods, computers, hard drive failures and phones. so my new phone is rockstar #7 and my nano is #5.

At school, I'm only one of two people in my program that owns a Dell Latitude. I haven't named my laptop, but I have been consistently accused of treating it like a person! We should all upload screenshots our desktops too... *geeks out* hahaha.

Yeah, my husband built both of ours, so I can't do this. :(

I can't bookmark my main computer because it's a one of a kind creation by moi. I named him Lurch because he's totally frankensteined out of a bunch of parts and built to serve me. :)

I never named mine, but I think I'm the only person in my group of friends who hasn't.
