    Ok, I'm not sure which to go for. I like the white and with a pink smart cover it will be nice and pretty.

    However, I am wondering, would the white be a bit distracting if say I was watching a movie or playing a game?

    I can't see it being a problem with browsing but not sure about if I wanted to watch movies etc.

    Would be interested to know if those who have the white one have wished they chose black instead because they find the white distracting?
    Thanks in advance

    I can tell you I bought a black one and my boss bought white (it was all he could get at the time)

    After extensively A/Bing the two side by side, he returned his and bought a black one. He watches tons of movies and much preferred the black for that.

    Love my white one. I had both white and black, no difference noticed with movie watching. Love my final choice.

    It's really nice and great but it looks plastic and cheap, I have had the chance to use both and I can confirm that it makes no difference to your web browsing experience, gaming and any other things.

    No issue while watch video. Both my wife and I just love the white model. Even our covers were white too.

    I ordered my iPad 2 Monday, and got the white one, just because I liked how different it looked. I don't think it'll be an issue watching movies, but even if it is, I can always slap a skin on there.

    I can imagine how a white iPad won't show fingerprint smudges and probably won't show signs of wear-and-tear either, but perhaps the best reason to buy a white one is that it makes you a hipster :cool:

    i.e. - Makes it look like more of an e-reader and less like a big shiny media hub. :ipad-movie:

    Also, talking about media hubs.. How many TVs have you seen that have a border that's anything other than black? White border TVs are just not as common, because the contrast of the white on whatever you're watching is too great. The converse can be said with reading an online newspaper/webpage - white on white looks much cleaner. :cool: (hipster shades)

    Taken from appadvice:

    Black or White Ipad 2:

    You might think this is just a question of aesthetics, but there is more to it. To put it simply, you should be getting the black one. Or to be more explicit, you shouldn’t get the white one.


    Why so ? Well, the white iPad looks much nicer as an object, when it’s off. For sustained usage however, it has a lot of drawbacks. First of all, it will you give the impression that the screen is dimmer, and has less contrast. The content won’t stand out as much.


    Think about it, as Gruber said on the Talk Show, there is a reason why TVs come generally in Black, and letterbox content with black frames. White will make your movies and games look worse.


    A white Frame will also reflect more light when you’re outside, it will be more visibly dirty and worse of all, white Apple products have a long history of problems, from cracking, to light leaks and so on.


    If you absolutely want to play the “difference†card, and think the look of the object is more important than anything else, then white might be for you. The Black iPad however is just as beautiful in your opinion, and a much better choice.

    LOL that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. When I went to the apple store, i compared black to white. Want to know just how much difference it made? Zero. The black is not better than the white and vice versa. Though the white does trump black in a few instances.

    I was lucky enough to have the choice, considering the store was almost out of stock. I went for the white version. The black version looks more sleek, but I think the white version feels (obviously) brighter. I have just had too many black electronics.
