Blue is my favorite color, and I really wanted to wait for the blue one. The glossy put me off a bit, I’d always be trying to wipe away the fingerprints. And then the waiting aspect… so I got the white.
I love the matte look! They SO made a mistake by not having the blue and black be matte. It has a bit of a pearl look to it… not stark white matte. NO FINGERPRINTS!
I thought I would hate the silver strip, but I don’t even see it. And when I do, it looks a bit like a thin silver ribbon around a white packaged present. (Can you tell I love this netbook? LOL!)
I think if I found out the blue one was actually matte, I’d be bothered.
Oh… and though I don’t know anything about them, I saw skins on ebay specifically for the NC10. Perhaps that would help, jonbad?
