    Question: Would you remove the Apple logo from your Mac if it saved you, say, $300? You KNOW that it's an apple product, and it has all of the Apple qualities - but you don't get to show anyone that pretty label, and you don't get to stare at it! Discuss.

    heck yeah, I'd take it off for $300. I have a whole bunch of stickers I could put on where it should be.

    Replace one apple with another. :p

    Ummm...none of my Apple products really have stickers on them. Are you sure that's not a Dell you're typing on? :eek: ;) :D

    Hmm...that's actually a tough decision. It depends what computer it is...if it's a cheap $800 MacBook, yeah probably. If it's a $3000 MBP, then no.

    I think that the OP is basically asking "does flaunting the fact that you have a Mac matter to you?".

    Yes, I'd have the logo removed if I saved $300. After all, I can always put one of my Apple stickers (that came with my Mac) on it, just like my envious "I-Use-Windows-But-I-Want-A-Mac" friends. :D

    I would definitely remove it for $300, but I would be very sad for days. :eek: :(

    I'd remove mine as well, but my PowerMac sits in a cabinet so you can't even see the Apple logo. On the Cinema Display, you can see the Apple logo clearly, but I wouldn't mind removing it from that for a good $300!

    I don't know how you'd remove it. This seems silly. :)

    It is silly. It's like a lifeboat question, only without such detrimental consequences (for most of us ;)).

    exactly! The question is; how much of the lofty price you paid for your mac actually went for the little apple logo?

    I think that Apple should offer a $300 discount for including the logo. My desk is not a billboard.

    the lofty price I paid is for the quality of the computer and software, not the logo.

    If I wanted to pay $$$$ just for a logo, I'd get one of those hideously tacky Yves Saint Lauren or Louis Voitton bags (I killed the spelling didn't I? :p) with the logo printed on it 4 times per square inch. (barf)

    edit:
    that being said, I'm not going back on my first post. I'm really, really cheap. If I had the choice of it (and actually paid for my Mac) I'd remove it to save $300. That's 3 years of applecare!

    As much as I love it, for $300 I wouldn't object. Heck if they paid me enough I'd put on an Intel Inside sticker.

    Here's a much more important question: would you allow your foot to be amputated ... and a couple other bad things to happen ... to get a flying car?

    My answer: no (to the foot) and yes (to the apple logo), assuming I'd just have a generic smooth case in its place, rather than a gaping hole.

    Interesting question. Heck yeah I'd go without the Apple label to save $300. I'm not much of a name-brand person. I pay for quality, not bragging rights. I personally don't care what anyone thinks of my computer, it's mine and it has specific jobs to do, none of which depend on someone saying "OMG you have a Mac U R SOOO cool!"
    Those things are fugly! (No, that isn't mis-spelled, just a clever combo of 2 words.) It kills me what people pay for ugly crap just because a tacky name is plastered all over it.

    Sure, I'll take off the logo and put an apple sticker in place of it.
