    The sticker would be unacceptable anywhere IMO.

    4. No sticker without a doubt. Besides i believe Apple wont call them intel but a new G range or new name. My thought's anyway because intel P4 and etc are marketed for pc's and the stickers are so you know what you have, like how windows have stickers. Not really sure, but time will tell. Its just its a year away :eek: :D

    I think they will call the new intel processors G5s

    So when the powerbook and the ibook get the intel processors they will be G5's

    Maybe. But then again if they did that there would be comparisions with the G5 currently found in the imac.

    Bleh. I'd prefer my apple to not have an intel sticker on it.

    Hm, underneath the keyboard? Inside the superdrive? Inside a ram slot? On the top side of the battery?

    Althought I voted "None-whatsoever" as a preference, I expect there'll be one on the outer cardboard packaging ... in addition to a little gadget that plays Intels trademark chimes when you open it ;)

    While there are both Power PC and Intel Macs on the market, I suspect they're going to have to have some identifier to make it more transparent to the customer which they are buying.

    While I'd rather have nothing or just on the box, I'd accept one of those plastic peel-off immediately stickers that are usually stuck on PDA/Phone screens to advertise functions. It works in the store to highlight what it is but is removed easily as soon as it gets home!

    Peeling the sticker off will void the warranty! :eek: ;)

    I expect and accept a sticker (or probably not actually a sticker, but some sort of small Intel logo) on the box. I think hell really will have frozen over if iMacs start shipping with Intel Inside stickers in the bottom right-hand corner.

    I said #3, on the packing box solely because I'm sure Intel will be pushing to get their name on it somewhere, and depending on what this partnership is really doing, Jobs might actually agree.

    I would much prefer to see a label on a disposable box than on the Mac itself. If it goes on the Mac I will be outraged and immediately attempt to remove it. Even if Intel redesigns a new 'intel inside' label for use with the Macs, it doesn't matter, they having nothing now and look amazing. Screw stickers, they cheapen the product.

    I hope you are kidding....you are right?
    Unless it is an infomative lable (usually inside the battery bay or etched into the casing on the bottom, any visual advertising label can be removed with fear of voiding anything. If the sticker is meant to stay, it will be called out on the sticker itself.

    So some of you keep stickers on your PC desktops and laptops!? :eek:
    Hahaha, that about made my day for laughing....can anyone post pics of a laptop in use that still looks like it's on the BestBuy sales floor? I would woot.

    I hate peeling stickers off that leave a gooey residue!
    No stickers at all!

    If they just *have to have* stickers to get the processor, put it on the box.

    If it *has* to be on the computer, then it should be a static cling sticker of some kind that peels off with no residue, like the ones they use on your windshield to designate an oil change.

    Hmmm we don't have PPC stickers do we?
    None of the other components have stickers.
    We aren't buying a NASCAR auto, its a computer!

    No stickers!!

    Woof, Woof - Dawg

    PS - Did I say NO STICKERS

    If I still had my laptop from my old job I would take a picture of it for you. We were not allowed to take the stickers off... including the Intel Inside sticker and various others.

    It DID look like it came straight out of NASCAR

    NO STICKERS!

    To all those who voted on something other than option 4, are you saying you would prefer having an Intel sticker over not having an Intel sticker? :confused:

    I like where you're going with the whole NASCAR idea. Anyone know where I can get ATI, IBM, and Cambridge Silicon Radio stickers for my PowerBook? :D

    OT, there will be a small Intel logo on the box, maybe even one printed in the Getting Started documentation. No stickers on the computer. Steve would never allow it.

    Hell no! I just figure Intel will push for some acknowledgment, and figure the shipping box is a safe location. Looks "good" on the cart when they wheel your new Mac out to the register, but won't actually be seen once you take out the computer and set it up.

    Agreed. I voted option 4 (obviously) but it's wishful thinking and I reckon your idea will be the one that actually happens.
