    I'm not sure if this a serious topic ...

    "and why?" ... Justification for a color? What does that even mean?

    Gold. :p

    I bought gold. Never liked it on previous devices (iPhone 5s to be exact) but liked the shade on the touch. Also why not.

    Space Gray for the only model with a black bezel (I'm used to having a black bezel on my iPod Touch). I prefer non-colorful devices anyway (which is why I have a black Macbook (AKA "The smudge magnet", heh).

    Blue, not only because it looks awesome, but because it's the "main" color, just like the light blue was for the 5th generation. The gold looks pretty good too, though. It will sell MUCH better than the yellow version it replaced. The pink looks cool too, better than the salmon color from before. And I've yet to see how the 5th and 6th generation space grays compare.

    Space Gray as I wanted this iPod to have a black face, instead of a white one.

    I like joyful colours so if a buy one just for me it will be pink! I really like the new shade. If I have to share it with my husband, maybe I will go for the gold one, because my son would already have it in blue.

    I went gold just because I have never done so before.

    Blue, it's my favorite colour and makes the iPod easily distinguishable from my and my families iPhone. Thank god Apple abandoned those milky 5c-colours, good riddance.

    I chose blue since it matches my blue leather case.

    gold is gorgeous, my iphone 6 is space/grey because gold is hideous on Iphone.

    I wont get it eventually because i want the black front/gold back.

    I think I'm going to get gold. I'll buy it on Friday. I really like the pink though. I might just get the pink. Decisions, decisions :D

    I got the space grey because of the black front :) I wanted the blue but didn't want the white front as my iPad mini and iPhone 6 have black fronts and are space grey so wanted it to match. The space grey is definitely darker on the iPod Touch compared to the iPhone 6 though

    Space gray. It's not really a choice since it's the only one with a black bezel. If bezel color were an option, then I'd get the gold. I'm trying to convince myself into the gold with white but with no success.

    I wanted the blue, but they didn't have it in 128gb when I stopped by the Apple Store, so I got the Gold. It was always between those 2 colors anyway. I like the space grey...but wish it had a white front. As a photographer, I don't like the black front. It's too reflective in sunlight, and at night, the borders bleed into the frame so that I don't know where the border ends and the picture begins.

    The gold is very more muted & understated than I thought. Very classy looking. My iPod touch looks like an iPhone now. Heh heh heh.

    But truth be told, I keep a rubber case over my iPT anyway, so it doesn't really matter what color it is. I dropped my iPT5 and the screen cracked.

    Went to the Apple store yesterday and they had a Gold, Pink, and Red on display (no Blue :(). The Red one REALLY caught my attention. More so than the Gold, for some reason it just didn't do much for me.

    I tend to go with space gray because, unlike the white front plate, it blends in with the small rectangle around the screen. I like the way the front of the device looks almost seamless when the screen is off, and I find that video playback is more enjoyable with black bezels.

    That is my 3rd choice. To me it has that "retro iPod" look. What size are you considering?

    i think ill step up from my current silver 32 gb 5G to a 64 gig this time around. Figure it'll probably be the last iPod there is, so may as well get one that will last a while...

    of course i went and got my new touch today and sure enough, it can't just be perfect - nope, rough edge around one side of the headphone jack so back it's going to go, sigh

    can i return it to any apple store or just the apple store i bought it from? i think i can return it to any store, but I'm not sure
