    Purchased a new HP laptop through Air miles rewards.
    It arrived with no genuine windows stickers etc.
    Not one sticker on the front or back.
    I have never seen this before.
    Always thought the stickers were to validate.

    Nice change though. No need to peel anything off.
    Just find it odd.

    Not all devices have those stickers anymore. My sister's 8" Windows tablet? The sticker was on some paperwork that came with it.

    My laptop doesn't have a sticker either. It's probably somewhere in my sea of papers...

    Write to them, it seems a refurbished item. A brand new HP got red stickers on box and display protection sticked on

    Some new systems, the key, and such are in the UEFI, so they really don't have to put the key and genuine sticker on the outside of the system itself anymore.

    I bought my HP laptop about 16 months ago. Aside from the clear plastic that they put on to protect the body and touchscreen the only thing on there was the processor and graphics emblems.

    Sorry for the big delay in responding.
    I see others have received there pcs without stickers attached.
    I'm alright with it now, actually prefer it bare naked looking
    Was abit concerned as I purchased it with my Air Miles reward points.
    Thought maybe Air Miles sent me some sort of reject.
    Thanks all!
