    they're not as bad as what we're all used to, but I just don't want to see one on a Mac case

    Really? I think they look incredibly ridicules now, they used to be fine (except for the Centrino logo, which I think looks great compared to the news ones)...

    I think an Intel logo would look really cool on a PowerBook, if it was done in white or silver, subtle like a watermark. On the bottom. INSIDE the battery case. Real small.

    Is Core Duo the official name of Yonah? Or is it Pentium M Core Duo, or what?

    I should know, since I plan to own one.

    Hmmm... I just called the two "new" logos fakes over in the other thread about this and I still think they're to ugly to be real... :rolleyes:

    Yes! I really don't know when went on their mind when designing those new logos. I mean, seriously, it lacks any kind of professional design skills.

    they all look kind of crowded. I don't think they lack professional design, since they probably paid a designer waaaaaay too much for it, but it is a poor/weak logo. And as a set/series, they are just one oogly mess.

    I like the old intel logo. What's with the circular swooshes? And no Core Quadro? Bleh.

    They've got nothing on the Pentium !!! Logo. :rolleyes:

    I kind of like them, I wouldnt mind one being laser engraved on the bottom of a Powerbook.

    Apple hasn't put PowerPC logos on any Macs since Steve returned, and it'll probably stay that way :)

    LMAO!!!

    I though the same thing but put it on the motherboard UNDER the chip itself, you know, in case someone who does this can see what type of chip it is they just pried off.

    let's assume they're real... why blame the designer? it's the client that has the final say.

    I don't like having my computer branded even if it is just a sticker. These 'new' logos aren't anything great (nor were the original ones) so I can't really express much enthusiasm for them.

    Hopefully one can peal them off with reasonable ease.

    Yeah but no one is ashamed to have 'PowerPC Inside' ;) people with Intel systems always remove the stickers, like they have the plague :D j/k

    I wouldnt mind a sticker on the mac's, those new ones look more 'trendy' than the current. Well the Core Duo and Solo. I don't see Apple putting the stickers on the box's though, very unlikley.

    Can you get PPC stickers then? I want one to put on my Power Mac ;)

    Stickers would be great! Little solvent and they're gone! It's the etching, pressing, or relief-type inscriptions that I'm worried about....

    PCs don't HAVE to have the sticker on them.. Intel pays PC makers, or discounts, to have the logo stick on the machine. It's one of the ways PCs are "made cheaper".

    I think we're all smart enough to know that Apple's got no problem charging an arm and a leg for their gear, so they'll avoid the stickers and pass that cost on to us.

    I don't mind them personally. Better than the old ones at least. :)

    I'm going to go with the majority here. I do not want to see a Intel sticker or logo anywhere on my next Mac. If there is one on it, it will be the first thing to go. I don't think Steve will let any Mac become an Intel billboard anyway.
