Do you know if the "Intel Core" sticker can be easily peeled off without it leave marks or tears / damage the rough plastic coating of the 900 / 900S ?

Hi denony ,
Personally I'd rather have Dry methods and test it on small area first before applying any wet methods. If the machine is within warranty , best not to throw the stickers out rather have it kept if possible as this would be one of the identifiers of technicians during repairs.
Hope this help answers your query.

Thank you for the links.
I have just successfully removed the sticker with the post-if method on a 2-years old Lenovo T450. It was very easy !
The I used scotch tape to remove the sticker glue residue. I worked. But I can see the surface is bit discolored, under the removed sticker.: smileyembarrassed:
I will not try to remove the sticker on my 900s, because of the rough / porous material on the surface. I not sure It will not leave any trace. It is a pity because I sure my 900S is even beautiful without this Intel Core M sticker.

Hi denony ,
Good to know the post-it method helps removing as with the sticker adhesive may be a different matter.
Keeping the stickers works for the technician specially for inwarranty machines.
Other ways similar to this discussion may help but again as I always suggest to test on a hidden small area first wiith any solutions before applying it .

I make it a habit of remove these silly stickers from computer equipement right away. Doing that will preven discoleration and other evil on the surface of equipment.
On the Y900s the stickers on the back were not place straight and had to go as well. I'm happy with a stickerless Yoga. So much more elegant.
My tacktic is using my finger nails. The Intel stickers are quite stable and are remove easily. I use the sticker itself to remove remaining adhesive by attaching and detaching it in successing a couple of times. Works all the time.

Some general comments:
1. I doubt it's necessary to keep the stickers. They don't affect warranty work. There are far more reliable methods to identify what's inside the system than the sticker, e.g. the machine type and model number, various software tools, opening up the case and looking, etc.
2. A drop of vegetable oil, e.g. canola or sunflower seed oil, left on the glue residue overnight will soften it so that it can be removed easily with a rag.
> I used scotch tape to remove the sticker glue residue. I worked. But I can see the surface is bit discolored, under the removed sticker.
3. It's not the surface under the sticker that's discoloured. It's the surface surrounding where the sticker used to be. That's due to usage over the 2 years that the sticker was in place. It's probably due to wear, dirt, skin residue, etc. That's why it's best to peel off the sticker as soon as possible.
