    I'm considering a 1GB or 2GB iPod Nano. Which color do you guys recommend (for any reason, I really don't care. Color preference, scratch visability, whatever...) ?

    White.

    Everything Apple sells is white/light aluminum (besides the MacBook), so it just "goes".

    White definitely. Mainly because it looks nicer, imo, but it also has the advantage of showing less scratches.

    I did a white or black poll on color preference for iPods (wasn't limited to just the nano). Quite a few people talk about nano color preferences in it too, so you might find it interesting. Here's the link. :)

    Get a black, because I got a black
    Seriously though, I think the black looks better, especially when it is off, the whole front looks very sleek. Also it matches my PSP and the fact that I am a Vader freak.

    White 'goes' a lot more, and with Apple's current line-up, white seems to be the main focus.

    White is also better for not showing scratches, and residue on the wheel.

    Be sure to get a nice Agent 18 shield, though. Happy Nano-ing :)

    Yeah, this is true. With the headphones being white, plus cables, the dock etc. They probably should couple the black iPods with black accessories, it would just look better.

    white is "girly" in my eyes

    Not to offend owners of white iPods...

    Black Nano
    Black Incase Neoprene cover
    Black Sennheiser PX 100s

    I get complimented on the look of this set up every other day. Very un-Ipod like, but waaay kewl (no, I'm not 12).

    For portable and computer applications that do not have a very powerful amp driving it, the Sennheiser PX 100s are my favorite headphones. Deeper bass, clearer treble, blows most buds & portable headphones away (excepting Etymotics... for short sessions and rapid movement, the Etymotics don't fit my needs... great sound, but kinda gross).

    I definitely recommend that Invisible shield...I just got it for my 5G and love it...now Im thinking of getting one for my nano. A bit expensive, but they do seem great.


    ....my opinion is white for both reason discussed above...it is genuine apple color, and it is less prone to showing scratches. However I do think black looks nice, but the scratches later in its life may make you regret your decisions.

    Definately white. Not only it looks better (IMO), it also makes scratches much less visible. 2 in one! :D

    Black nanos tend to show more scratching so I would go with white. They also look nicer IMO
