    So I designed this sweet decal that took me a fair amount of effort to apply precisely to the lid of my laptop, but now theres a hardware problem that I have an appointment for the apple store to take a look at.

    Does having decals on the lid hurt my chances of getting a replacement if its necessary? Do they have gripes about that sort of thing?

    Going further off his useless post, you should be alright. So long as the stickers aren't affecting the MacBook Pro's performance, they should not care whatsoever. What is the issue?

    As someone who has done the retail gig, I'm well familiar with what alot of companies consider "altering the product" and believe it or not, decals fall under that category for a lot of manufacturers. Just wanted to make sure that apple didn't fall into the 'thats frowned upon' category.

    Apple products do come with stickers of there own, and my friend has taken his macbook into the apple store with the stickers placed on it so I assume there would be no problem at all.

    you never know. they may want to know if it's hiding something. or worst case, remember the guy who sent in his xbox 360 signed by the halo team? they tried to take the sharpie off. :eek:

    its your own private property, why is apple going to tell you you can have stickers on it?

    its one thing to attempt to work on it yourself but applying stickers?

    the day they make that a no no is the day they have officially gone too far.

    About a month and a half ago I brought in my dying 17" powerbook G4 that was having power management issues. It had a lot of stickers on it, including a yellow line crossing out the apple logo (inside joke).

    Long story short, I'm now waiting on a brand new 17" mbp because they couldn't fix mine, so they're giving me the brand new one... go figure!
