Hey guys, I just got a new laptop, and I was wondering how I could somehow phyisically put my name on it.

At first I thought about taking it to a jewer and having an ingraver used on it. But the jewler was smart and suggested that the engraving would likely void my warenty.

So Im thinking now about having my name put on a small metal plate (such as a dog tag), and having it attached to my laptop. Do any of you guys have any suggestions?

Id say you're best bet is a permanent marker. Silver if its a black laptop, black if its a silver laptop. Etching anything into it wouldn't be a good idea in my opinion.

How is the little metal tag to be attached?

Either through super glue, or small metal screws, or perhaps a combination of both of them. I just need to becareful of where the screws go, and how long they are.

Yeah, I can't really think of any place it's be safe to screw into :)

Glue'd be ok though, just make sure you aren't gunna want to sell it later on. Also, check warranty conditions, and make sure gluing on a metal strip won't end it.

Screws + Laptop = No-No. Those things are cramped enough as it is, you'd probably end up putting one through the CPU or something. Glue it if you must, but there is another option - have it stamped on with permanent ink.
