charlie,

I have to second sanity's opinion - what matters is what you like an what you think about it. I have a white Macbook also and a white iPod. I think they stay cleaner as well.

since when did white become the new pink? What's wrong with white?? If someone tells you that again, tell them they are a shortbus version of a homophobe.

I was thinking about getting the white one because it would stick out against all of the black 8GB models. But I use it a lot in my car so the white will stick out against the black and gray interior or the car.
So, I will be going with black.

I didn't see white as a feminine color before this thread was posted. I figured white was a choice because of the white MacBooks.

Personally, I will be getting a black one. For me, when it comes to tech, black is beautiful. I'm still hoping for a black MBP.

I will have not problem blending in with the crowd. All of the "Is that and iPhone? Can I see it?" was fun at first, but now it's just annoying. Either way, I think the iPhone will be as common as blackberries soon.

I thought you were going with a red/white theme for your car. It would be perfect for that.

I have to agree with pretty much everyone else on here. Go with what makes you happy.I thought the white one was weird when i first saw it, but then when I looked at it on apple it is what I would get if i didn't already have the iPhone.
Which btw I have a white case for

I hear that the black one is very prone to finger prints where as the white one stays cleaner for longer. see this link http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/art...3gs-new-shell/

It would match the body; the interior is black. A white iPhone would be the only thing white in my car.

I think the 5G iPod, MacBook and Nintendo DS look better in white than black. I think the PSP, iPod Classic and iPhone look better in black than white/silver. I think the iPod Shuffle (2G) looked best in that bright orange, and the iPod nano (2G) looked best in the bright blue and green. I think the Spyderco Delica looks best in pink, and the UKPK looks best in foliage green.

Why? I have no idea.
