    Agreed completely!

    I remember the whole the White Macbook is not Manly argument a while back.

    If you like it in White, buy it! Enjoy it!

    My iMac is white. Nicest computer I have ever owned. So is my iBook.

    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.

    to the op, the 3g iphone looks sweet. how can someone say white is feminine? they must have snorted a huge line of something before they said that statement.

    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.
