    I use the processor name, machine model, or primary application as the name for the machine.

    My desktop's name is xeon for the processor, server is hercules since I primarily use it to run the Hercules mainframe emulator, laptop is called x60 since it's a ThinkPad X60, AlphaStation is called alpha, RS/6000 is called aix (slightly breaking the rules).
