    My birthday is coming up and I''m gonna ask my parents for a Nano (i'm so glad to finally have a screen after a year with the shuffle). Anyway, I'm either gonna get a Black nano or a Red one. I love the red color so much and I was waiting for it. But, the black would go really well with my macbook and also with the Etymotic ER-4P that i'm planning on getting. I know the black has double the storage but I don't have that much music to begin with. What do you guys think?

    I personally would go for (red) but it simply boils down to your personal pref.

    I just ordered the black one. Mainly because the extra cash for twice the storage looks like a good deal and will save me rotating my tunes quite so often. The Red is a nice colour tho...

    get the black for the extra storage and if you want it red later on, go to a car painting shop. you can even make it pink

    My black one has just arrived 2 days early from the apple store. Not bad, I only ordered it late on on Tuesday (it's Thrusday morning now). It does look pretty slick in the black.

    If you don't need the extra storage, get the red. Goes towards a good cause. You could always get a black case, but it also says something good about you when walking around with it.

    Agreed. It looks better to me, and if storage isn't an issue, then fantastic. :)


    It'll just be some pointless "make-yourself-feel-better" fashion statement anyway. :eek:

    Or how about you get the Red Nano, then donate the money you didn't spend on the black nano to charity. That's actually a charitable thing to do. I mean, surely we don't need to buy a $200 toy for ourselves and have a corporation make a $10 donation on our behalf. Just donate if you want to be charitable. :)

    EDIT TO ADD: I'm not saying this Product(red) thing isn't a nice idea. It does help a good cause. However, why do we only feel generous enough to donate $10 when we're buying something and/or getting something in return?

    if you dont need the storage get the red it is for a good cause, and keep in mind the black is the same price as the 30 gig to that should be considered to. (Id get the 30 gig)

    RED!!
    It's your birthday and it would be a good idea to make Apple donate $10 towards the good cause!
    Moreover "Red" is for winners!!!!

    I second what was said earlier. If you were spending the $249, I would do the 30GB iPod, and skip the Nano completely. That being said, the $199 (product) RED is beautiful!

    I'd opt for the black, personally. Don't really like the red. :eek:

    I say get the black. Having the extra storage now will save you down the road as your collection grows. I just picked up a black one last night and I love it!

    $10 goes a long way. If you were to research the figures on this campaign you would know that.

    He is buying an iPod anyway. Why not go out of your way to the red?

    dang i see ur not a canadian.

    red would be a fitting choice.

    howeer, i have a blue nano and it looks really good with my black macbook. so any color works well pretty much.

    i think you'll seem pretty boring if u have black of everything.

    I chose to sell my black one and get a red one. Since I only have 2.5 GB of music, I hope its a safe choice. Should arrive tomorrow.

    I ordered the red (product) nano. Not only does it look great, I really like the business model it's associated with :D

    I recently bought an 8GB nano, and i love it (probably enough to say it's the best iPod ever, IMO), but if you do not need more than 4GB of memory, and do not think you will anytime soon, i see no reason to not get a red nano if thats your favorite colour. If you are desperate for it to match your MacBook, here is your answer ;)
    And, while i love the black nanos, they do show fingerprints more easily than the other colours.

    the black is a lot nicer looking IMO. But really, it's entirely based on your personal preference. If you're really torn, flip a coin.

    The red one looks really nice. I'd prefer it over the black if I were getting a nano, despite the higher capacity of the black one.

    Black for me.

    Your preference is what counts.

    On a side note, while the red one is associated with donations, I wish that the whole iPod line up was that way.
