I just bought my first new mac since 1995 - a Powermac G4 Dual 1.42Ghz (which BTW was about the same price as my Peforma 6110CD was when I first bought it)! <br><br>Anyway, as I was taking it out of the box, the sticker Apple uses to seal the bag that holds the manual got stuck to the side of the computer. I immediately tried to get it off, but whatever adhesive they use is good! Now my new computer has a sticky spot on the side! I've tried soap and even rubbing alcohol to remove it but no luck! Does anyone have any ideas that would get rid of the stickiness without hurting the computer casing? Thanks!<br><br>
Masking Tape. Not scotch tape, not duct tape and not electrical tape. Masking tape, rolled around your fingers a few times and then push down over the sticky spots should pull the glue up. If that doesn't work, dishwashing liquid.<br><br>What part of the case is it stuck on?<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I'll definately try the masking tape first. <br><br>The adhesive is on the side of the tower under the Apple logo. I've got it to the point where you can't see the spot unless you look at it from a certain angle. But if you run your hand over the side, it slides easily over the smooth surface until you get to that spot. Thanks for any help!<br><br>
Thanks to all! I did the masking tape first which removed most of the adhesive. After one spray of WD-40 the rest of the stubbirn stuff wiped off easily! I really appreciate the help guys! My last Mac served me well for 7 years. If my new one has to last me that long, I'm glad it won't be sticky!<br><br>
