I always tell people, "I'm not a real IT person: I don't put stickers on my laptop." That said:

  • I've never put bumperstickers on my cars
  • My boss used to yell at me because my cube was so barren that the building's seat-nazi was threatening to reclaim my desk because she thought it was unoccupied
  • my wife considered it a great victory when I allowed her to buy a painting to put on our otherwise bare walls
  • I chose my Android's homescreen/launcher because it allowed me to tuck all of my app-icons into drawers
  • I get genuinely annoyed when people leave icons scattered around a desktop.

Probably some other examples of my spartan aesthetic I could point to. :p

The closest thing to a sticker would be this one on the speaker:

Also pictured:

  • sheet from adhesive feet for Schiit Modi 2U
  • a single adhesive foot from a D-Link DCS-5### series camera that fell off in 2008
  • smooth but poorly-attached brownish sticker of unknown origin
  • 2x EZY4613 SXF-ATH boarding pass stub from 10JUL (year unknown)

Other "stickers":
