Need a new name for my toy.

It was supposed to arrive at the vendor at Wednesday, maybe shipped on that day, but probably more like Thursday, which would make it really possible to arrive at Friday but Saturday latest: My new toy, the tablet.
Dear Ms. Simon, I am glad to tell you that your toy was shipped and will hopefully arrive at your place tomorow.How the hell am I supposed to do any work today or sleep this night?!
Toy. Available. Tomorow. I'll probably stand up at 7 am (which is 2 hours before my usual time) and wait for the delivery man. Which will probably bring it it not at 8 am but somehow 10:30 or so.
Learn two german expressions:
Spielzeug = toy (the seller picked up on my expression of 'new toy! new toy!', something you usually would not expect in a formal mail notification.
*hibbel* erikativ from hibbelig, showing of the movement of waiting very, very impatiently for the new toy.
But, I need your help. (I wrote down the following yesterday, but made the fault of checking in the second life game - which led the computer to crash and take the text with it *grrrr*. see, that is why you need a second computer for things like this)
I need a name for my new toy! Of course it should be something meaningful, snarky, funny, possibly playing with mythologie and modern culture - you know the drill.
To give you a short expression, of what I have at the moment.
The computer at work is called Keksdose, cookie jar. I love chocolate and I like cookies.
The one at home is chocolate and cookie; it is called Noix. First, because it is a HP machine in black, second, because my aunt calls those machine big black boxed, third because there is a cookie I like called "Maison Delacre, chocolat noix" and finally: Because I love good, dark, chocolate.
My router is called Nemenisis - a mixture of Nemesis and Nisi, my general account name (neezee is just the spelling so you know how to pronounce it, by time now I like this spelling much more than nisi, but in general I prefer Nicole, thank you for asking. ;))
So, the new machine. The new cute, small, expensive toy. To give you some more information:
So in general, a mobile working machine for hanging out in cool places and to support my consulting business and podcasting interests. :)
Got any suggestions for that lil' beauty? :))))
Additional problems: I will not have the wifi thing ready in time - which means I have a problem of having the weekend before me but not being able to play with it at the same time as doing work on my main computer :((
Tag(s): Tablet, TabletPC, Lenovo, Thinkpad, X41
