So right now I have a white 5g 30 gig that I have an iskin evo3 case for. It's alright and does it's job and all so it's ok. I just ordered one of the new black 80 gig ipods and am thinking about not using a case. While the case does protect the ipod, it does take away from the aesthetics that are partly responsible for the ipod being so desirable. Do any of you not use a case for your ipod, and if so what kind of shape are they in now? By the way, if I get a case for this I'll probably stick with another iskin evo3 one.
