    Hello,

    I was wondering is any of you guys have any experience with macbook decal stickers? I'm considering buying this one http://bit.ly/1ldCeQs from CreativeDecalDesigns, but I don't have any experience with laptop stickers and want to make sure I'm not buying something that's gonna mess up my laptop lol

    So, please let me know if any of you guys have had a MacBook Decal before and what you think of it. Thanks!

    I think this is one of those things that you need to think about yourself ;)
    Your opinion is the only one that really counts!

    Not one I'd personally get for I my laptop, but I really like it; it's vibrant. I had one on my previous laptop ( a coffee cup silhouette ) and will probably get another at some point for this one. I don't care for stickers slapped all over the place, but those like this that integrate the glowing apple logo are generally pretty fun. As stated, it's all about what you like, there is no wrong way. Thanks for the link.

    I don't like decal stickers, don't know why.

    On the contrary, when I get my rMBP in two months, I will put one or two die-cut stickers on it. I'm a designer so it might be just "our thing", but I really love something like this. Just not 20 stickers one over another - that's ugly. Image down below :D

    The attached image is not my cup of tea, I think there are a number of decals floating around there, that do in fact look nice.

    Its a personal preference thing, some like them, others do not. If you like them, or that specific image, then get it. Don't worry what others think

    Another crowdsourcing affirmation thread.

    Do what you want to do to your Mac, regardless of what anyone else thinks.

    I think the design is cool, but it's not something I'd personally go for. It might be perfect for you, though!

    You should make your own choice rather than rely on the opinion of strangers on the internet.

    It's cool mate but I really don't like stickers on notebooks like macbook. Its design it's made for being simple .. But my opinion doesn't matter because you should choose what you do with your stuff and how you customise it :D.

    Hello! Thanks for all the responses! I appreciate it :)

    I wasn't asking about the design as much as I was asking about whether these decals end up leaving residue and mess up the surface of the MacBook. Any info on that would be appreciated!

    Any residue could be easily removed by a dab of acetone or alcohol. The MBP is made of aluminum, thus it is non-porous.

    I voted Nay and would not consider defiling my Macbook. But I am a grumpy old man :)

    I use a decal girl skin on the top lid, so I voted yay. However, I like classy and well made/creative skins/stickers. The classic skateboarder type with a bunch of random "vans off the wall" and logo stickers all over the Macbook Pro? Hate it.

    I've decorated my rMBP with decals and I love it, it adds a personal touch to it, I think. I see nothing wrong with putting decals on your computer. It is, after all, your computer. It won't damage your laptop in any way, whatsoever. It's perfectly safe and easy to remove if you wish to take it out later on.

    I have a coupon for a free Mac decal if anyone wants it ($15). I got it from macphun as part of a Black Friday deal and probably won't use it. PM me and I'll update this post when it's taken.

    Alright guys, I went ahead and ordered! Though I ended up going with a whole marble skin set in the end. I figured if I'm going to buy one decal, might as well get the whole skin set. I got this one http://bit.ly/1O8LZGe

    Very excited! I'll keep you guys updated and let you know what the final result looks like. I really appreciate all the responses I received and the help, so thank you :)

    the whole point is...this is yours. if you want it plain & simple, cool. if you want to devour it with stickers, skins...that's cool too. whatever works. :D

    Again, not really something I'd do, but congrats. Its your computer and if you like the look of the stuff, great. As many folks mentioned, you only have to please yourself and don't worry about what others think

    But if you must have a sticker, make it black and white, stark.
    Very restrained. I've heard the 2016 MBP will be made of Italian marble, so you're ahead of the curve.

    The marble looks nice in the pics. They ALWAYS look nice in the pics, I hope it works out for you.

    I personally wouldn't do it. Though if the stickers somehow light up uniformly, if applied over the glowing apple symbol, then I could possibly talked into it. Otherwise, I am not a fan of the simple sticker

    i've never been a fan of unintended sponsorship; you know, nike logos on t-shirts, the apple on my powerbooks, then macbooks. i love my sticker, it lights up perfectly. back in the day, the apple logo was cool, i'd be one of a few in a coffeebar on a mac. now everyone's got a macbook something (so i can be the one at the coffeebar without an apple logo).:cool:
