    Hi!

    Just wondering... do you like removing the stickers when you buy a new computer? And if so, which ones? Because there are different "kinds" (so I may call them) There is, generally,

    1) The ones that are big and right under your palms, mostly with the computers characteristics and such

    2) The warning and caution labels (generally transparent)

    3) The Intel Centrino, Windows Vista, ATI / nVidia, etc.

    Which ones, if so, do you remove? I just bought a HDX 9200 and removed 1# and #2... don't think I'll remove #3!

    Hope to hear from you guys

    On my Dells, I've only had OS and CPU stickers, and I keep them. I added a Ubuntu sticker! I would lose #1 and #2 if I had them. :rolleyes: :D

    Cheers...

    I peel off every single sticker before I even boot my new laptop -- I can't stand them. :eek:

    I paid for the laptop, not the stickers.

    A bottle of isopropyl alcohol and some elbow-grease, and they #3 stickers will peel right off. Also, an eraser works really well for getting the sticker residue off.

    I first remove windows logo's.
    Then warning info.
    Then energy stickers.
    I tend to leave CPU/GPU stickers.

    #1 definitely, #2 sometimes, unless they're on the bottom of the laptop. Usually don't touch #3.

    eBay possibly? Seems to me there's loads of different logo stickers out there. Why not just get different OS stickers for a dual-boot system and stick em on? Makes it more interesting. Or at least tell people what you have in your notebook without switching it on/taking it apart~ :D

    Then again you can have too many stickers... :p

    Go to Ubuntu's website and request a free Ubuntu install CD. A month or so later, they'll send you an Ubuntu CD + 10 or so stickers.

    Thanks. i just ordered kubuntu cd's

    Hopefully they come with the kubuntu sticker.

    Adding stickers might make it an eye catcher and easier to sell ;)

    EDIT: Do they ship you 32bit or 64bit?
