MacBook Pro: Used to the name yet?

I don't call it a Powerbook anymore, but I'm still nostalgic about that name . . . ;-)

I'm usually using MBP - it's an acceptable alternative to PB
Sticking on MacBook is gonna cause a passel of problems when the little guy arrives.
In Australia and the web site is out of date.
Lots of good deals on Retinas, previous high end MacPros and current MacPro 6 core bundles in stock.

Nothing beats calling my legacy machine "Pismo."*

*Since I do not have a MacBook Pro.

i don't know what all those comig guys are complaining about. I like the new name, it's become much more mature. It's semi-ironic as to call it the macbook considering it can run window$ theese days. I also like the metal name under the display as apose to my lousy semi-rubbed off powerbook G4 logo
