I guess the tutle says it all, I have seen a few stickers around that would look cool on my MBP. Will they damage the surface? I doubt it, I just want to check.

I have stickers on my MB and it doesnt seem like they've damaged anything. I had a vinyl car decal type sticker on it and it came off just fine. It left some gunk that came off with a towel sprayed with surface cleaner

I have one on mine and I don't think it'll do it any harm. Mine was very pricey for a sticker though.

Check it out, pretty cool yet pricey designs.

Shipping kind of sucks because they have only 1 option (8.95 or so and it felt like it was being delivered via pony express :x) and it takes forever. Mine took a week and a half to arrive.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

wow, those are pretty cool. If there is any danger of stickers damaging the casing, I'd think those ones would find a way around it

It's just decoration. A bumper sticker with a stupid joke on it is silly, but a stylish sticker/wrapper for your laptop or ipod seems like a personal expression thing to me. Like a tattoo.

I have a sabian sticker (the cymbals I use) and one that says "I <3 MY WRX" the car I drive. Its an expression thing. Its impossible for one sticker to be an expression (whatever someone considers "stylish") but another to not be expression. Sorry, but you can't just say one thing is expression and one thing isnt.

Oh, and my car costs more than a computer, therefore the stickers go on the computer, not the car.
