Hi Steve,

That was a great buy.com deal, I and a friend got one each.  The gummy 
sticker was horrible.  I was able to peel most of the keyboard side off 
cleanly and cleaned the rest up with a fingernail.

On the case side, where I wasn't worried about messing up circuitry, I 
used a paper towel wetted with WD-40 - that nearly always works great 
cleaning gummy label "stuff".  You can follow up with (rubbing) alcohol 
to clean up any WD-40 residue if necessary.

Alcohol itself sometimes will take off gummy and is safer to the 
components, but I haven't had much luck with it lately.

Best regards,
