I can't really find any reports on it, and I am getting it instead of those childish colors.
Most likely, because it is anodized and will be done similarly.

However; it might not be as bad because it doesn't have the beveled edges.

Yes, the bevel does scratch easily, but it's barely noticeable. Mine came with a few tiny scratches on the bevel and no scratches on the backside.

Same here luckily. I'm curious if others have the same luck.
So far, mine is spotless too... Although, I did get the silver and white model. Oh and I've already christened my new ipod by dropping it on a table... ugh! But, I'm happy to report, no scratches! Even in sunlight! Definitely need a case yesterday lol

I think it's highly likely since my new blue one had two significant scuffs on each side, right out of the box. Got an RMA from apple and they are sending a replacement next week

Hi, new member.

Yes it does I'm afraid. Mine (black 64 GB) had scratches right out of the box. I'm contemplating a return, but I'm thinking that it would be a wash ultimately. It's going to suffer some minor scratching inevitably, especially around the 8-pin port.
