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.

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

I like the name Macbook, I can live without the Pro adjunct. All Macs are Pro.
