  1. So, I've been forced to sell my rugged, reliable beloved Compaq N610c. It has seen many an hour at my side, serving as a tuning computer, restoration machine, music player etc. Anyway, I took the time to personalize it by placing many stickers across its lid. However ,I need to sell the unit.

    What are some good ways to clean a laptop, removing stickers without damaging the finish on its surface?

    there are special cleaning fluids for computers and hifi available in computer stores. important is that they do not contain alcohol!
    what worked good when I bought a full of stickers used laptop was a soft towel with warm water (not too much water :D) to get the sticky stuff off the case once you pulled off the stickers.

    WD-40 works well. put it on VERY lightly. It will remove the gum.
