To distinguish it from user id, I mean I want to change the ID of my laptop i.e. the title it has when you would say connect to a phone via bluetooth.

you mean the host name, well here are some instructions:
In Ubuntu, you go to System, Administration, Network (unlock it with your sudo password) and then to General tab, and change the "Hostname"...you'll need to reboot after this.
