A laptop without stickers looks naked

I love seeing a laptop with lots of stickers on it. I always wonder where people get them. A laptop with stickers is more personal. It has character.

The other day my kids received a whole book of stickers that they gladly shared and now I, too, finally have a laptop full of stickers!

Do you put stickers on your devices? I'd love to see some pictures, please share in the comments.

Haha this post could start a war!
I do ZERO stickers. ZERO! Not on my laptop, phone, car - nothing! I like my stuff clean and pure. You're all animals!

Gosh I thought I was the only one. I really don't get it why I would ruin my clean laptop with stickers. My inner monk has a heart attack everytime I see those nasty stickers on a laptop 😱😄

What I do is put my laptop in a case and put the stickers on that. I've done simple colored plastic cases in the past but my current macbook is in a Thule bumper case with the stickers on the clear plastic sheets. This allows me the creative freedom to continue to put stickers on the current case or buy a new case to start completely over.

I was never against it, but never made an actual effort to put stickers on anything until just recently I met a sticker designer on Twitter for which I absolutely love their SEMI-original (nothing is that original anymore) style and I think they are a student so I bought some of their stickers to help patronize them... Also, Like you, my kids have a bunch of stickers, but my kids put their stickers on my stuff without me knowing it lol.

I just wanted to decorate this 5 year old but completely usable core i7-6700hq laptop. Retrofitted with 32gb of ram 1tb nvme pci ssd and it's still a beast. The stickers also hide the ruffled look ;)

some stickers
p.s. I had no idea why I put the java sticker there. I do not do java, though groovy and scala are cool.

I've also been using my Macbook Pro since mid 2015.

I had never put stickers onto my laptop until recently, when I finally put a GitLab sticker on my laptop. Even then it's on the inside. My Keyboard has a few Ubuntu stickers, as does one of my water bottles.

I like the look of stickers but hate how over time they wear away whilst the adhesive layer underneath remains and gets really gross and grimy. For this reason, I've given up on them.

Just put new stickers on top 😉
Or put a little nail polish remover on a tissue and wipe the spot to remove the grime.

I put stickers with a purpose. My one big fear is mixing up laptops at airport security and then boarding a flight to far away lands with the wrong laptop.

I prefer one or two stickers (more a big version of them) than a bunch because te looks less overloaded.
I agree with you about laptop character, but in my case is better a simple look
