Do you care about the appearance of your electronics?
I spent much of this week searching for a new television. My wish list, I thought, was relatively simple: I wanted it to be small, light and energy efficient. Oh, and white!
This last requirement turned out to be the tricky part. I didn't think it was an unusual request - I wanted my new TV to match my decor, as well as my beloved MacBook - but after wandering the aisles of several big box electronic stores, I realized that maybe I was going to need to do a little more digging!
As I asked around, I got a lot of "you want a white TV, really?" responses from friends (is it really that unusual?), but eventually managed to to find a small white TV in stock at another big box store. And, I'm happy to say, it's now mine!
But, this whole experience has made me wonder - how much thought do people put into the appearance of their electronic purchases? Do most people just settle for standard black, or is it worth putting the legwork into more design-friendly finishes? Obviously you know where I stand!
