    Im the last person to buy white electronics, im generally not a fan of them.....but i dont know what it is, but ipad 2 i think looks better in white. It just stands out more and is elegant. Nothing against black but the white is so sexy and its different! You can tell apart from ipad 1 from a distance. Also picked up a white case to put it in but not sure if im going to keep it or get the black case. Cause white does get dirty easy.

    here you go. Friend of mine says to bring the case back for the black cause its going turn grey very quick.

    Go on! You bought so everyone would know you've got the two, you devil! It certainly looks good with the smart covers but I would probably get it dirty! Tell us how you get on with it.

    I got a white one also. Actually the reason I started posting on this board was when I was trying to decide between the two. One big reason to stay away from white was that some people said it would distracting, but I don't agree with that now. When watching a movie or viewing pics, the white bezel is not distracting, and when it's not being used, it looks beautiful lol!

    I/we have a white iPad also ... I also probably was one who suggested less viewing performance, etc. I also find the white is great, however. Interestingly, I also have the Apple Wireless keyboard and the keys match. Now how nice is that.

    I type a lot and needed/wanted a great keyboard ... nothing better than the Apple keyboard (touch and technically). I know Zaggmate is awesome in packaging for those on the go a lot)... this is also most acceptable... just ask Marilyn (Mickey330).

    Just wanted to be agreeable and supporting... we all need that once in a while. FWIW.

    White's cool. Fingerprints and smudges not noticeable, either.

    I would never buy a white phone and was intending to get a black iPad, but after seeing the iPad2 in white in store, I had to have one!

    I bought white too, but frankly, since it lives in a leather cygnet case it make little difference, only a small amount of white is seen.

    Did you realize you spent less time putting on the screen protector? My dad got the black n he spent at least 30 mins more then I trying to get rid of lint. I've got plenty under mine but the white just masks all imperfection. 

    At least for me I should say

    I was looking to buy a black one but after a couple of weeks of searching I came up empty and I knew my local Best Buy had the whites available so I bought the white thinking I would exchange it for a black one if I regretted the purchase. Well I really liked the white so much I didn't even consider trading for a black when they finally became available. I do wonder how the sales are lining up between white and black.

    Thee white is outselling the black big time. I know the stores here they would immediately sell out of the white then black later.

    When I showed up in the morning at my Apple Store, white was what they had.
    I have no regrets, had two white iPhones too.

    A larger concern is keeping the screen clean on both devices.

    I also wanted white (16GB WiFi), but since the immediate availability is what it is, I had to do with a black one (32GB black).

    I have had both, side by side, as bought one of each on launch day.
    Love both.
    Can make a case for either as far as looks go.

    However, I assure you, those of you with white iPads are not seeing the screen as rich as those of us with black.

    While there is technically no difference, the eye perceives them differently.
    Black enhances, enriches the screen our eyes see.
    The difference is like day and night.

    Since I will be putting a Skin-It on mine anyway, it didn't matter to me which one I got.

    Every electronic gadget is black. From cheapo mp3 players to cell phones. White pops in a sea of black. There was never a option what color I was to buy when the iPad2 was available in "Apple white". I love the white iPad2. I have a grey smart cover and a silver carbon fiber skin. Its very mono chromatic and very rich looking. The skin also gives some grip.

    Nice Mystro where did you get that carbon skin?

    Like I said im using a white case on mine but im wanting to hear feedback from others if white cases are going to stain and get dirty quickly over time. If so ill return it for the black case.
