    The white Apple logo ones. I've seen them come with other macs that I've used too. What's their purpose?

    Free advertising. Or you can put it on other things that you own, and pretend that it's made by apple. ;)

    To make a non-Apple, "Apple-labeled" computer?

    In case the Apple on the back of the screen wasn't big enough.

    Ive seen people put them on their cars. When I went to a recording studio with my old band, the engineer had one on the studio door. I have one on the front skin of my bass drum!

    Its pretty obvious why they come with stickers - owning a mac is something people are proud of and like to show off about!

    Stick one to your forehead and go out to a club. You won't need pickup lines.

    Stick the other over the mouth of some dweeb yammering on about their liquid cooled, green LED laden PC and say "Ess tea eff you, newb".

    Wish you had a third to go to the bars with again. :(

    On midsummers eve burn them over a fire at sundown and scatter the ashes to the four winds while wearing the skin of a panda that died in a road traffic accident and dancing widdershins round an apple tree and the Pagan Overlord for North Carolina East (P.O.N.C.E.) shall grant you a special wish worth up to £35.

    Or you can just bung 'em on guff.

    You could always laminate the sticker then velcro it to your head when the situation arises! :cool: :apple:

    Pretty much!

    I stuck one of mine onto my TB external drive, the other one's sitting in the box waiting to be put to 'good' use. Really, do whatever with them. Throw them in as an extra on your next e-bay sell.

    Advertising mostly. Apple has been doing this since the Apple IIe days (maybe even Apple II but I didn't buy one until the IIe generation)...:)

    I have one on a Portable Hard Drive, and the other one is on my mirror. But I have more, I have two from my iMac, two from my iPod and four from my iPhone and the one's from my Mum's iPhone, which I stole. I have my collection :D

    Yep. We got a couple with the ][+. They had the rainbow logo and a funky font. They're still around here somewhere.

    Find that IT guy at work who's always bashing Apple and Mac users, you know the one, and stick it on his rear bumper. Hilarity ensues!

    What? Not fair. I didn't get the sticker when i bought my iPhone 3G.

    I'm planning to paste the sticker on my black netbook.. Haven't decide yet MSI Wind or Lenovo IdeaPad S10... Make it look like some fake black apple netbook :D

    I stuck one to our faux-stainless-steel toaster to class it up a bit.

    If its placed on the right appliance, those stickers can add at least $10 on to the yard sale selling price. :apple:
