I know people must be tired of all these threads by now, so I apologize before hand. I was thinking that the white MacBoook would show far more scratches than the black, and that black would cover up more. A friend told me her black iPod (I have a white iPod, where the "white scratches easier" idea comes from) scratches easily as well, so I'm a bit confused. Either way, I'll be getting one of the two this weekend. Just haven't made up my mind yet as to what color to go with.
