Well, at home I usually use the name of the room the computer is in + "COMPUTER" or a slight variation on that.

When I worked in the local university they had a naming system which was like this:

DEPARTMENT + "PC" + NUMBER

e.g.

GEOPC123

Would be:

Computer 123 in the Geography department.

At my school they have a slightly more elaborate system which is like this:

ROOM + "-" + MAKE + "-PC" + NUMBER

e.g.

M4-DELL-PC12

Would be:

Computer 12 sold as a Dell, in the room M4.

I prefer the way the university does it.
