They're still there because people still like subsidizing hardware/OS. I think there should be better ways of this, unless you get a special arrangement with Intel and Microsoft, they aren't going to let the manufacturer ship without those advertisements.Chrispy_ wrote:It doesn't always work, but it's good for a lot of those ugly, pointless, OH-GOD-WHY-DO-WE-STILL-HAVE-THEM? stickers.

Uhhhhh, file this one under "use with all due caution." Things that come in aerosol cans and are intended for automotive cleaning usually include strong petroleum-derived solvents which are notable eye and skin irritants and can be hazardous to some plastics, and by design they can get all over the place when used. In particular, I would hate to see what that stuff might do to a laptop screen, particularly a matte screen, if the overspray splashed up there.

Though I doubt you guys are doing any spot-welding with the brake cleaner nearby, I would be incredibly careful with it. The heat produced by a laptop and the amount of atmospheric argon present is not likely to produce Phosgene gas, but due to its particularly low LD50 (4 parts per million) value I wouldn't take my chances.
