What did you name your Pinebook Pro?
#31
I named mine "lambda." My family has a tradition of naming computers after Greek letters, and I was trying to figure out the name for my PBP. Pi, to represent the "p" in Pinebook? No, that would conflict too much with the Raspberry Pi. So I looked to the side, and my girlfriend's sweatshirt, customized to look like an H.E.V. suit from Half-Life, with a big lambda on the front, happened to be sitting on the bed, and I decided it was too much of a coincidence to pass it up.

With only one exception - my primary laptop - I name all my machines (desktops, servers, laptops, tablets, and phones) after various fictional artificial intelligences. E.g., my phones are Shodan and Xerxes of System Shock fame, with ringtones to match. My wearables are Daedalus and Icarus from original Deus Ex, because they always catch me by surprise with their notifications. My TVs are Eliza - a reference to AI TV personality - (the new big one) and Wall-E (small old one), and so on. Because my Pinebook Pro is the smallest laptop I have (all others are 15+ inch mobile workstation beasts) , the most unusual and unique among other computers (the only ARM-based system running general purpose desktop OS I have), and in a way is still a work in progress, not fully upgraded into its full potential I decided to call it Gortys.

Mine has acquired the name "craptop", since it's broken more often than it is functional.

I though helios0ne had a nice ring to it. The name has significance to Borderlands and Fallout series of video games. This pleases me.
#36
The one I'm using now is named pinebookpro1 because the pine keepers would only let me buy 1. Smile

By seeing this post i started to think about a name for my pinebook pro that came today.
I chose the universe of Sword Art Online and named it asuna.
#38
Named mine "anna" as a follow-up to my previous laptop (HP elitebook 2560p) dubbed kaisha.

All my computers except those 2 have been named after people I know.

PineBookPro

I know, it's very creative and unusual...

I merged my initials and part of my precious name. Smile
