Yes, you can! You may want to reconsider if it’s a warranty seal, license key, or serial number sticker, as losing those can make it difficult to get your laptop or its bundled software serviced in many situations. You may also want to avoid removing stickers if the laptop is in mint condition and you plan to sell it.

If you’ve decided that you indeed want to take stickers off your laptop, be sure to avoid using methods that involve harsh solvents, abrasives, or excessive heat that could discolor or warp the surface.
