Is your warranty voided if you choose to put stickers on your computer?
As long as it doesn't affect the functionality of the machine IE putting stickers over vents.
i really really dont think a sticker will void your warranty on a hdd or somehting like that but i can see them arguing that because of the sticker you put on some weird discoloration happened on you lid and not replace the casing for you
why would you put stickers on anyway...your going to kill the beauty if an apple laptop!
Anyway, It shouldn't void the warranty depending where you place it...just don't stick it over the vents....
Yeah, I think they're fairly reasonable about this. If you come in with a cosmetic issue, you can expect to be sent home. For anything else, as long as there's no reasonable way the sticker could have caused the problem, 99.9% of Apple's tech people aren't going to try and take advantage of you.
thanks alot. i just wasnt sure. but i dont know if i am gonna put stickers on it. but its always good to know just incase i ever decide to.
I have stick on my 12" ibook. The apple stick that come with apple product. A stick that said "Property of (my name)". And a sticker that saids "An apple a day keeps the (a picture of bunch virus and bacteria) away".
If you plan to put stickers, just get a hardcase and put it on that instead. Good luck!
I had an old HP tower one time covered in stickers (I worked at a grocery store). It kept overheating and shutting down. I took into Futurecrap where I bought it and they said it was because of the stickers all over it. I knew that was an excuse because they couldn't figure it out.
Eventually I discovered it was only a 250W power supply instead of the advertised 450W. I had 1Gb of RAM, 3 Hard drives, 5 fans and a video card. There just wasnt enough power.
It was too late to say anything. I had had the computer for 2 years at that point.
It's actually kind of sad that an entire laptop can run and charge its battery off of 45 watts or so, my iMac can run its entire business including display off a 180W supply (I think -- I believe I've read that actual typical consumption was around 90W), including that nutty G5, but as soon as you go into a tower configuration, you're not even running the monitor and 250 watts is insufficient to drive a normal config plus a couple of extra hard drives. You figure that if you were having trouble, you must have been running RMS power consumption above 200W.
Computer designs can be so wasteful!
Well for Identification may be the most useful reason. I would put a sticker with my Name on it on the bottom of mine so in case it was lost or mixed with other systems I can find mine.
Just memorize the serial number that's already on the bottom of your Mac.
You mean people don't do that?!
Or you could carve your initials into it or make a specific etching/marking so it'll be identifiable. I find scribbling on the case with a pink marker is helpful.
I just got my serial number tattooed on my arm, that way incase I forget I can just look at the tattoo! It's that easy!
What happens when you get a new Mac? New tattoo and a list of all your old ones?
yeah man, a list of memories... oh how I remember G85230UZRTY ... such a good Mac.
or you could just cover up the SN each time if you really want to be stupid like that.
