    Exclamation Black or White
    Ok, so now I have decided there is no point in buying the new iPod as I am never going to sit down with this big thing and watch a video. So that means the Nano. Should I get black or white, I hear that the black looks smooth and cool but it scratches easily and picks up fingerprints, most of my friends have that one and it makes it look horrible. Where as the black one I think looks good at the begininng although will get mucked up I think i would prefer the white..

    Anyone got one, if so which colour and why, if not which colour would you get,


    Although it does not affect the quality of the music I would like it to look good!!

    Thanks in Advance

    I have the black nano and would say go white. The black looks sweets but it does show oils and marks from your fingers. I won't say it scratches more than the white, but that it shows them better than white. My 3g ipod has alot of scratches but because it is white I can't see them well due to the color. The black does look awesome when clean and sitting in its dock!

    the black would be fine, but I would get a case. it shows scratches/buffs really easy without it

    yeah, that'd be fine. Really anything would be. iSkin, nano tube, whatever.

    I vote for the white. As was said, they both scratch just as easily, but the white doesn't show as much. And besides, what happens to the "coolness" factor of the black when you have it in a case all the time? Just a thought.

    Yea, white for me. Looks more clinical, pure and 'clean' if you know what I mean.

    I am getting the White. BTW the new ipod is 45 % smaller than the classic iPod.

    I put a Writeright (anti scratch cover for a palm pilot) on my Black nano and it doesn't get scratched anymore and it cost me $2. I am however buying a professionally made vinyl skin tommorow.
