    I decided after having ipad 2 and ipod touch black to get the new ipad in white so it did not seem quite as samey.
    Trouble is I ended up with black cos Apple store ipads seemed really dirty white towards the adverts. Do they end
    up losing teir lovelyness after a few months and going creamy instead of white or was I just being picky ?

    Well, I guess if you were looking at the store demo models with many people handling them, some with grubby hands, you would have noticed a difference. But that is not to say that someone who has purchased their white iPad, and takes pride in their acquisition as no doubt you would, could see any deterioration in the natural colour over time. I bought a black one but only because it suits my occasional mood and personality

    I have had my white iPad 2 since launch in March of 2011. Zero discoloration. The white border is under the glass, so imo discoloration makes no sense.

    It's the way they are from Apple...
    Someone else mentioned that in another thread.......the new iPad 4 white doesn't seem as <pure> white as previous units. Maybe some one at Apple grabbed the wrong can of paint? :eek:
    Don't know as I would never own a white iPad.....just to distracting IMHO.

    Black is more elegant. :p

    When I was first looking at the new apple iPad mini I was told everyone was wanting the white ones. I ended up buying the new 4th Gen. iPad and I being old school wanted it in black.

    My brand new 4 in white is very white. More so than my 1.5 year old 2 is.

    My iPad 4 is white if I am viewing it with a lamp or the window light. In the dark with only the iPad light it is very cream color, almost buckskin color. That is when I am usually using it. In qfact, I was amazed weeks latter viewing in the light that it was even white! Of course, if I ever had it out of the lime green Smart Cover, it may be a whole different color!
