    Which iPod Touch backing do you want?

    A) Stainless Steel
    - this is the same backing they've used since generation one

    Pros: Strong, Durable, Inexpensive to forge.

    Cons: Scratches easily, Dents if struck, Conductive, may reduce wireless reception.

    B) Shiny Plastic Backing
    - Similar to what is on the iPhone 3G, and iPhone 3Gs

    Pros: Strong, Light, Inexpensive.

    Cons: May get scuffs over time, and it attracts a lot of oil and fingerprints.

    C) Aluminum Backing
    - The backing type that is available on the 4th Generation iPod Nano, the 5th generation iPod Nano and the iPad.

    Pros: Strong, Light, Very sleek, resists fingerprints.

    Cons: Chips if dropped, and because it is so firm, the shock of the drop is not absorbed by the material, meaning all of that shock must be absorbed elsewhere, like the screen. It is conductive as well.

    D)Other
    - Tell us your idea below!

    C) definitely, looks sexy. And Apple should fix the issue with dropping the device.

    I think a plastic backing would be really nice as well, but only if Apple used the "gorilla glass".

    Using the plastic and the normal glass front would result in an odd weight distribution.
