    looking to pick up snother 5g nano and im torn between green and blue (have red and orange now)

    i bought the blue but decided i liked it but didnt love it so i returned it for the orange one...it looked nice under the fluorescent light but looked a little cheap under natural light but lately its been catching my eye again

    my other option is green...my old 4g was green but i always wished it was darker, and now the current 5g green looks spot on...im curious though if that one looks as nice in natural light as under fluorescent light?

    which would you choose? feel free to woo me with pics--not many to be had on flickr or google

    or woo me into yellow

    Love my blue one but i've never liked the shade of green on the iPods. That's just me though- what you like could be dramatically different ;)

    I would go for the blue, but once again it's your choice. :)

    Up, up in my studio, studio
    My preference is in my sig.
    Your preference may not match mine.
    The fact that you've already returned blue for another color before should give you a small hint.

    My advice? Go to different stores and look at the green one in different lighting. The green ones in the dimly-lit enclosure at, say, Target will look somewhat different from the ones in the brightly-lit Apple Stores.

    EDIT: Just out of curiosity: May I ask your reason for wanting a third 5g nano? Not that there's anything wrong with multiple iPods; I was just wondering if you're a collector, or perhaps you choose the one that fits your mood/matches your outfit at the time.

    2nd EDIT: Have you considered refurb? Ya gotta love the savings!
    (Come to think of it, does the online Apple Store sell refurbs in Australia? I don't know; I'm in the US.)

    not really a refurb fan, even though i know how good they and their warranty is.

    i can always find a use for another ipod ;)

    the first two i have are just my nice ipods that i keep nice, this one would be a workout one to get all sweaty over and maybe bring in my car, cuz right now im working out with a beat 5th gen ipod video with a HDD.

    fwiw id love to see green outside under the sun but i cant seem to find pics of a green one outside anywhere

    I have a green one and it wasn't a contest for me. I think it shows up nicer than the blue. Though in my case it was either green or the grey/aluminum.
