I don't see why everyone is freaking out over it. It's his computer he can make it personal in anyway he wants. Personally I like putting stickers on also, helps makes it stand out amongst others. While I wouldn't have put that many on I would def put some on. On my first Macbook I have Homer Simpson eating the Apple logo.

I'll eventually put one on here but I want to wait it out and make sure I buy a hardcase for it first.

I'd rather brand one over at ColorWare ( yes, it costs significantly more ) than start sticking stuff onto it.
Personally, I dislike all of the above photos... they are just down right ugly :)
... but yeah, that's just my personal opinion.

That's pretty cute not to over the top. I also love the snow white eating the apple it looks awesome. to much stickers seem over the top plus you only do that to hide an ugly pc

They look amazing , but won't it void your warranty ?

Yep, it usually voids it but that's why you have ColorWare warranty.
If anything were to happen, you send it back to ColorWare and they take care of it.

Nothing is perfect... going with ColorWare has its disadvantages. If you don't have the money for them and will have no option to replace the notebook if anything were to happen ( again, mainly lack of funds ) then I personally would suggest buying a normal one and stickers...

On the other hand, if money is not really and issue and you really find branding valuable, then ColorWare currently is one of the best options out there.

Does it hurt resale value? I'd assume that you'd have to find a buyer that likes the exact color combo you got.

If resale value is important, you should maybe just forget about ColorWare all together. It's definitely a bad option for people who expect to see at least a part of their money back in a years time ( of course, this depends on the level of branding you apply to the notebook as well... I for one would replace the apple logo with a panel that has my company logo cut out instead and backlit + of course the body / panel / etc. would be painted in company color - I am actually planning on giving this a shot in the near future / just waiting for some news on the the possible 13" rMBP ).

No offense OP, but putting stickers on my very expensive MBP is not something I'm up for. I love the look of my laptop and adding stickers just detracts from the looks.

I've seen some very nicely done decals for the back, but mostly, I don't want anything cluttering up the beautiful looks of my MBP.

I've got the Tardis flying into the heart of the (Apple) time vortex.
That's what I mean ;)

I really want the Snow White one but they're a bit pricey.

I've never heard of Colorware before and I just googled it but I don't exactly get what it is... why does it void your warranty?

Yeah, I know...too nerdy for words to describe.
Cool!

Sadly, if I did that everybody would think I liked the new series (RTD/Moffatt), but I really don't... one's too saccharine, maudlin, and mawkish, and the other feels like a superficial retread of Patrick Troughton's era... :( But that might not stop me from doing it anyway... :D
