    This might be a silly question but if I put a sticker on the back of my Surface book (like a sports team logo, etc.) is it hard to get it off once I want to sell my device down the road? Has anyone had any issues pealing away a sticker that's been on their Surface Book for a while? Please keep in mind that I do leave my surface book in the hot car during the summer.

    Will depend on what the sticker and glue are made of. I wouldn't want to use a paper based sticker.

    At the end of the day, a little bit of patience and some rubbing alcohol and itshouldnt be a problem removing a sticker.

    There are also vinyl "static cling" stickers which don't use adhesive. They work on most smooth surfaces, but are typically used on glass, they would be worth a try to avoid adhesives...

    Use a vinyl sticker only. Both of my Surface Book units and a Surface Pro 3 have Stickerboy.com skins, with vinyl. No residue whatsoever. Pretty little preserved computers beneath. (See Stickerboy Skin - Protector on my Surface Book)
