You don't care what it looks likes at all? Supposing your chosen mp3 player had the exact same spec it does the now but it was only available in pink with gold stars, or fluorescent yellow - I dunno, insert what you find to be putrid - you'd probably still buy it? I mean, I see companies stick to an uncontroversial palette to avoid that problem, but are you not bothered either way?
Personally, I don't think you need to be particularly style conscious to not want to buy something you find ugly. I mean I find the blue a bit unsightly myself and if I'm gonna buy anything that costs 55-65 quid, like a pair of jeans, I think it's fair to ask that there's enough range to pick something that looks, you know, okay.
