    Smile What colours do you prefer?

    I was just wondering what colours on your monitors, mice keyboards, cases etc you all like. I'm not sure myself, although I've just brought a mainly black pc (because I liked the look of the case which was black/silver.

    Black as color rocks!

    Yeah - I think I like black too, but one website went on said that black monitors hurt your eyes more - I'm not sure if that's true of not.

    White/beige is fine if its ultra stylish, but of course that is rarely the case with computers. Black is cool especially matte black .

    Other colours are rarely used in computers which is a shame. Some of the Voodoo systems are different colours but Custom PC had a yellow one a while back which looked very nice.

    Ultra cool though would be a stylish PC sprayed with a pearlescent paint job like this . Of course you'd have to have monitor keyboard etc matching but still it would be worth the effort.

    Yeah, I voted silver cos my Centurion is silver, but I would vote black too, cos my keyboard and flatscreen are black. Then there's the MX300, which is a bit of both...
    For joy, apparently, it was all Franny could do to hold the phone, even with both hands.

    A sliver of silver is good for me (see what I did there, oh I am good!)

    I was about to vote black, but then I actually descided to hit other. It depends on where really, but I often thing black and white ends up a little too grey. I do not mind a little colour in my surroundings. Red/Orange is nice. It all depends on the amounts and where, but I like not having everything black from time to time.
    Light travels faster than sound. Is this why some people appear bright until you hear them speak?
