Qumputers v Computers

well, the pronunciation of the word 'qumputer' would be much like saying the word 'computer', but with a swallowed 'o'. Especially in writing it would be handy, for it would mark a clear and logical distinction between the new devices and the old ones. While writing this down, 'computer' already sounds a bit old fashioned!

I'm still having difficulty imagining it. Would it sound like kwum-PU-ter or kum-PU-ter?

Or how about Quantum Leapers? Nanocircuits? The Apple Seed? Nanosoft...?
