    If you put it in a case it should be fine.My white sonicare toothbrush base is now yellowish compared to the brushing heads that I have changed periodically .I think anything over time changes color and of course white would show up the most.

    In fact, it doesn't get dirtier, it only looks dirtier. :rolleyes: Anyway, if I were you, I would just clean it 2/3 times a week.

    Or buy a cover, but I don't like most covers myself, I prefer the looks of the iPod without cover. The choice is yours.

    When you say covers, do you mean screen protectors or just the case?

    It won't hide the fingerprints as well but you don't actually touch the white under the glass.

    It will be dirty as much as a black one, it just will show worse.

    I keep hearing it won't look at dirty cause of fingerprints? I usually just use screen protectors anyway!

    A case. You can clean the screen with special sprays. That's what I do.

    Where can I buy a clear screen protector? None of this anti glare stuff!
    Preferably in store. Apple use to sell crystal film not anymore

    Anti glare IMO makes the screen look less hd.

    Just get one off eBay. You can probably get a couple for under $1.

    Yes, but on the other hand: Shiny black surfaces show up dust way worse!

    This thread reminds me of a similar philosophical question;

    If a girl in a bar is wearing white heels, will she be dirtier than the equivalent girl wearing black heels.

    The answer in this instance, is yes.

    The actual layer of white "paint" is underneath the glass panel. So no, it will not get dirtier, but dirt on it will be easier to see.
