    I'm looking to buy a new iPod within the next couple weeks and I was wondering should I get a black or white one. I heard scratches showed up easier on the black one but I wanted to get everybody's opinion. Thanks.

    I would get a black one just cuz i have a white nano... i WANTED to get a black nano but didnt cuz of the SCRATCH FACTOR.But i would get a black one if you have an iPod that doesnt scratch/show scratches easily.

    Not only does the black show scratches easily but it shows EVERYTHING easily. Even your fingerprints will show up easily on the black giving it a hazy look instead of the nice shinny black.

    i got a black one. this was said about the black nano, not sure by whom:

    (its an interpretation, not verbatim) "the u2 ipod is like a white, wanna-be black gangster from the 'burbs. the black nano is the thugged-out, gonna bust a cap on yo' ass gangsta from tha hood." -i'm not sure who said it.

    BTW i'm not trying to be racist, just pointing out that somebody said it.

    White

    I'd go white. Black will show dirt, fingerprints, etc. White also just looks more Apple-like. If you do get a black, make sure you always use that protective sleeve that comes with it.

    I am personally waiting for the next gen of iPods that hopefully wont scratch as much.

    I loved the black iPod when it first came out, but now that the novelty's worn off I much prefer white. Black just makes it look like every other consumer device out there, almost unworthy of the Apple logo. IMHO. :)

    Was thinking of getting the black one for a long time, but reading about how it shows the scratches means I'm now getting a white one.

    And puckhead193 is right. iPods are white.

    I have ordered a black 30 and an invisible shield.

    Now, why don't Apple get together with theinvisibleshield.com and factory produce sratch resistant iPods?

    OK, the iPod case market would die but I never really liked cases anyway.

    I bought the black one for a change of pace and by no means regret it... but I do miss the classic white. So my next iPod will definitely be white :). (voted for black since i bought black)
