    I have never been a fan of sticking things onto my notebook or iPhone but this one has really got me wrapped up. I feel like buying it, although would rather have it in black to contrast the fine details.

    What do you think about it ? First impressions in a few words ?

    This is the Serpent provoking Eve to eat the Fruit of Knowledge.

    Thanks ! (Click for larger image)

    :D I kind of had the same thought first time I saw it but it eases out when you stare at it for sometime.

    There's some sort of provocative fury to this artwork that I really like.. to me its like something 'seriously casual' on something powerful. Like turtle-neck & jeans on someone like Steve Jobs.

    Talking snakes

    I don't usually do stickers, but, on the other hand, I don't believe in talking snakes.

    Yup, saw it on Gizmodo or such. I loved that one. But haven't watched Iron Man / not a fan, so thought it would be a bit hypocritical. They cost very much the same though.

    Looks tacky, sorry. Stickers are for protecting Snowboards and Helmets :D

    But if you dig, you dig.

    I think stickers can be nice. Keeping it simple is important though in my opinion. This sticker has too much going on. I quite like the Iron Man sticker but I think I'd hate it after a while.

    I have a sticker on mine. I'll upload a photo ASAP

    Iron Man and Snow White are the two nicest ones I have seen
    But I still wouldn't put one on my MBP

    Yup. Its biblical. Or do you want me to be a fan of a playboy becoming a superhero when he puts on his tutu ? :p :D

    Nope, just curious since you said you were not a fan of Iron Man

    You can find them at etsy dot com, search "macbook decals". There are plenty (although most of them aren't too interesting). Very good artists nevertheless.

    I don't like it since you asked. I like the Snow White one.

    Honestly I like it a lot! I tried to find some artwork with Adam and Eve, or even the tree of knowledge, for my 13" pro a while ago, and I found nothing already made or anything that would work with the apple logo. Also a Newton related sticker/etching would be another good idea.

    I always wondered if this is how apple choose their name, and this sort of relates to Wozniak's original price for their computer $666. Another (Anti-)Biblical symbol.

    The non-color snow white is better.

    Talking snake? I'd pay to see that! PM me with the details. Do you have a paypal account?:p


    I don't like it when people put stickers on their MBPs. The Iron Man is pretty sweet though.

    I guess it would be okay on a MB, since it's all white and plasticy already, but then you would have to get a black sticker.
