I bought my MacBook Pro 17" in May and love it.

You would have been asked to name the computer in the initial setup, but if you didn't set it there, it's probably called My Computer.

To change the name, select System Preferences > Sharing and change the name at the top (this is in Leopard. Not sure how you do it in Tiger because I always name mine at the start and never change them).

I upgraded to Leopard on Saturday and it is mostly working pretty well, although there are a few interface things I don't like, such as the coloured menu bar (which takes its colours from the desktop image and is thus a shiny green in my case). and the dark grey header in Safari, which means the icons at the top are hard to decipher.

Which machine are you going to use for your e-mail?
