A word used to describe an electronic device (such as a notebook computer, MP3 player, or cell phone) that is prone to attracting visible fingerprints. Most often, these devices have shiny or glossy reflective surfaces designed solely for aesthetic or trendy appeal. Not only do these surfaces easily fingerprint, but they are also prone to excessive visible scratching.
The iPod is a classic fingerprint magnet.
