I went to Apple and was open to either blue or green. Both are flattering, but the green won out because it has a more luminous quality and there has not been one regret since the purchase. It is simply stunning. BTW, the review of new iPods in yesterday's business section of USA Today gave them 4 stars (out of 4).
It really is the bees knees and looks gorgeous.
I went into my Apple reseller, got them to bring all their colours out and the pink was the most striking, I just had to have that one.
If you're going to choose between blue and green though, I'd definitely go with green, the blue looks a little too conventional (plus three of my friends have blue iPod minis so I was always against it!). You should really go see them all for yourself though, you won't regret it.
I would go and see them in person.
To me they seem quite a bit different that apple.com and/or the ads show but that can be chaulked up to different people seeing colors differently or the quality of the monitor/tv.
I would go for the green, i do not like the blue, its too...weird, i would LOVE a Navy Blue, or a very DARK blue, even the green is a little to neon, but i would go for the green just for the funkiness
I would go with the blue. I really liked the blue, but I went black. It was a really good shade of blue. The only reason I didn't save the money and got the blue one was because I never liked the white clickwheel on the Mini and still don't like it on the new Nano. So I got black because A) I like black B) the whole thing is black even the click wheel.
