AMD Plans to Change the Stickers on Desktops and Laptops

If you buy a laptop or even a pre-built desktop, odds are you will find some company stickers on the palm rest of the laptop or the bottom part of the case. In most cases, those stickers do not come off very easily and can leave some residue or even portions behind. Some people just leave them on to avoid the hassle of trying to remove them. AMD has heard the complaints and also does not like the stickers applied to its products. AMD told The New York Times that it is planning to change the way the stickers are applied to its products or even remove them altogether. AMD hopes to gives consumers an easier time to remove the stickers or simply drop them completely from appearing on its laptops and desktops. AMD will switch over to using different stickers that should be easier to peel off sometime in 2011. For now, AMD is leaving it up to the OEMs on whether or not to include the stickers.

That's awesome news. Those stickers are freakin' annoying. First thing on any laptop I see is take them off. Only good thing about them is I've got a nice collection that I've stuck on the wall. Unfortunately too many of them are for Pentium Ds... *shivers*

I like them. -_- I like having the stickers of the brands I use on my case. I have a kinda big bumpy one from my eVga card that I am saving to put on my new case once it arrives.

They ought to include them separately, so that the consumer can decide whether or not to put the stickers on.

I agree with Locutus, they should have a sticker pack so you can customize your case or laptop the way you want it. Kinda like they did for the Guitars and stuff for Guitar Hero.
