I'm buying a new nano in anticipation of an 8-hr flight later this week. I haven't been to the Apple Store since the 3G's were released, and don't have time in my schedule between now and my trip, so I'm ordering via Amazon Prime. I've had 7 (yes, that's "seven") various iPods thru the years, but this will be my first to play video. I'm leaning towards either blue or green, as I've already had black, white, red, and pink models. But I have a couple questions: 1: As far as the blue and green, would you consider them to be bright/vibrant, or more soft/pastel? Ie., lime green or avocado? Electric sky blue, or baby blue? 2: Do you find having a colored case to distract from/cast tint on videos? I'm so used to watching TV and movies in either black or silver frames, I'm concerned that the colors might not fade into the background as much as a neutral housing would. 3: Is the casing glossy or matte finish? 4: Is the silver truly silver-looking, or more gray? And is the black truly black, or more charcoal in appearance? Any other thoughts you might have on choosing a color - other than "pick the one you like best" - would be greatly appreciated.
