    I thought about the Arctic, but after putting it in a black case will the color really matter.

    I am a "pocket" guy, not a case guy. I may lose either way, but I think that the Artic color ROCKS!! AND, I put my money were my mouth is. If it gets stained, a little rubbing alchol never hurt anything?? JK

    I got an Artic, I think it looks great. (Yes, I use a Mac)

    Can't wait to get an Artic so I can take a picture of my White Treo, White Wii, White MacBook, and White iPod.

    For real, the reason I got the white is because on my 650, where it is scratched, the plastic under the paint is white. I bet the Artic will not show as much ware after time.

    I know everyone seems to fear the dirt factor, but I can't see how the Arctic is going to get any dirtier than any of my other devices. I put my 650 in my pocket every day, naked, and it's never gotten dirt on it. The paint wears down over time, of course, like any other well-used device. But dirt? What do you guys keep in your pockets?

    Maybe finger oils and such could be an issue, but that would show up just as easily on the silver of my 650, I would think. And it never has.

    None of my white iPods have ever gotten dirty, either, so I'm not worried at all.

    Isn't it a fashion faux pas to wear that much white after the Fall?
