    If so, take pictures of the back... I want to see this 'black stainless steel'.

    And no I don't like U2.

    Aren't there plenty of pics around the net? Look through recent posts on MacBytes.

    iLounge has a photo shoot of one in their First Looks articles. The black stainless steel is very, bloody cool.

    I am good with the black and it tops the prior dreadful finish, but I am no fan of the graffiti look.

    Wow, I didn't know it had the black stainless steel back...that looks really cool, too bad they didn't make an 80GB limited one because I would have bought it...I already filled my 60gb one and I have no need for a 30gb one, where are the bigger iPod??

    I saw one at the store, the back is actually a lot more black than you would think, it is literally all black, not just darker.

    The black stainless might be the tipper for me (Rob needs a B-day Present).

    What a waste. Don't you think a Limited Edition ipod that DIDN'T feature U2 would sell way better? That makes me not want to buy it. Bono makes me sick these days....so lame.

    I don't care if it features U2 or not, but I'd buy one if the red wheel wasn't red :p (in other words, I like the black metal)

    I thought I'd like the black backing too but...

    ...I don't. The fingerprints show worse than they did on the white iPod's backs!!! Plus, with the signatures engraved on the back, you really have to like U2 for this purchase to make any sense...

    ...the red clickwheel, in my opinion, is more of a reason to purchase this iPod than the black shiny fingerprint-prone back.
