    Silver or Black?

    Trying to decide which case to get. I'm leaning towards the black, but not entirely sure yet. Whichever way, I'll probably order tomorrow.

    Silver case:

    Personally I prefer a black theme....but ultimately I'd say it depends on the desk/office area you have it in...whatever my "fit in" with the decor and style more.

    I currently have a black case. I will never ever EVER purchase another black case. It's like a car that is black, it's much harder to keep clean...well, at least look clean.

    My plastic black case is like that, but the aluminum black case I have stays clean nicely.

    You could paint it yourself for less than the $25 extra that the black cost...
