Hmmm. If these really are the new colors, Mango is a lot yellower than I was expecting. Still a "maybe" until I see one for real, though. As opposed to the Violet -- that's a no brainer (pretty much like the Dark Lilac: "you had me at purple..." ).
I actually like the colored clips. One of the things I *don't* like about the "standard" Safari colors is the clip. I know that it's really functional, but it just looks like a big annoying paperclip to me. Which is one of the things I really liked about Dark Lilac (besides the color of course) is the black nib and clip; I find the color clips to really be much more attractive looking somehow (I keep drooling at the old French Blue with the red clip, but then look at the pricetag of every one I've ever seen and go "Nope, nope, just not paying that kind of money for a Safari...").

Well, the black clip is the genuine design of the Safari. They changed to chrome clips some years ago. I guess it costs less in production.
