I just can’t make up my mind.

Then it's easy.. :D You always go Space Gray until you've gotten it too many times that you're ready for a change and then you get silver. After having silver for a while you realize that you would rather have Space Gray. This cycle repeats every 4-5 years although the timing may differ from person to person.

I’ve never thought of doing that. That’s smart!

Go to the store and look at both options....

If you are going to get the apple folio, Remember that only the edges will be seen. If you are getting any other case look at what will be seen....may not matter if you have it in a case that covers all of it.

Space grey model once scratched will be silver.’

Silver model once scratched will not look as bad.

Get grey if you are sure you won’t scratch your device.

Just imagine one day you notice a silver scratch mark on the grey model.

I picked gray because my MacBooks, iPads, and iPhones are all silver or white.

I did think about the gray anodization scraping off, but my iPad will always be in a clear case.

I bought a Space Grey model.

I checked up a Silver model in the store, but found the thin silver border a little distracting.
Dark borders on screens have a reason, they blend in better with the actual panel and don't distract as much.
