    Well I decided that I am going to buy an iPod Classic either tomorrow or Saturday but cant decide which color. What would you choose silver or black?

    I'd probably go with black :apple:

    Silver just looks too common to me...

    Do other people's opinions really help you in this case ? :confused:

    My personal opinion is that an iPod (classic) has to be white. Since that's not an option anymore, I'd go for the one that has at least a white clickwheel... The black one looks kind of bland to me. (Although I liked the former version of the iPod classic better in its black version - you know, the one with the shiny acrylic surface)

    Had a black one when they first came out and didn't like the little chips in the black paintwork so I've gone back to silver now.

    Silver hands down for the same reason I would choose a Silver car over a black one. Black usually does not hold up as well or at least it is easier to observe blemishes like scratches, nicks, and fading.

    Isn't fitting in with the trendy kids the entire reason to buy an Apple product in the first place? He just needs to be sure he's fitting in with the trendiest of the trendy :D


    Definitely black for me though.

    Well I went to the Apple store today and played around with the classic and it just seemed to slow and clunky so I ended up buying a 16gb red nano and I like it alot more.
