If they want to plaster something with stickers they should put the
stickers on the box it the laptop comes in. Mine had the microsoft
sticker, the key sticker and the intel celeron sticker... now I know
what my computer contains, as I bought it. The amusing thing is that I
bought the thinkpad without an OS and yet it still had the windows
stickers all over it.

I used to feel them under my palms (I've got big hands) while using the
keyboard. It bugged me enough to get rid of them.
