@user39966: What do you mean? Why do you not think they are useless? –  Jarvin Oct 11 '10 at 19:42

Your main concern should be ruining the surface underneath. If you end up selling the laptop 5 years down the road, I doubt anyone buying a used laptop will care about the stickers. Though if the surface is all scuffed up they might care.

Check out this question for how to remove them without ruining the surface.

You might also consider painting them over with a clear nail polish. That should help preserve them.

Nail Polish won't come off in pieces. Of course, it can always be re-applied. Regards, –  Xavierjazz Oct 12 '10 at 18:22

You can buy them on eBay.

Windows XP Stickers

Centrino Stickers

I actually take them off on new laptops, as otherwise the areas underneath them do not wear like the surroundings, so they leave a visible area that is not smooth when they finally disintegrate.

Goo Gone is the best stuff to safely take them off.

One could argue that the stickers should be left in place to keep the laptop as originial as possible, it proves (to some degree, I know you can remove a sticker and put a new one on) what processor and OS came with the PC and such...I like them, but maybe that's just me...

Just put clear tough plastic on the sticker and then put some clear tape on the plastic.
