Both but I lean towards calling it a computer. I actually have one of those old metal handheld cheesegraters in my kitchen. Haven't used it in a couple of years though.

Well, you could always buy the Mac and grate cheese at the same time!

It's funny we always referred to the 2008-2012 models as the cheese grater mac pro, but now this current one looks like it more than ever! hehe.

I really want to hear from Christopher and how his 28 core is doing and if he's having the low clock speed issues.

Since we're into nicknames for Macs:
the first Macs had the nick of 'toaster'
the early Quadras went by 'pizza box'
early iMacs had the unfortunate nick of 'toilet seat'
