Staying with black as photographs look better.
Thats why lightroom uses black and not white.

You know, I was thinking pretty seriously about getting a white one. But then...I realized that watching movies on a screen with a black bezel would probably be more comfortable than with the white, which is a good bet why the vast majority of TVs are also black. I think the white would be somewhat distracting from what you're trying to focus on in the screen. The black, in a way, almost makes it seem like you're peering through a dark opening rather than through the hole of a (rectangular) white life preserver ring. My point is, the image doesn't have to compete with the bright white bezel and thus it can stand out better.

Yeah, there's pros and cons for both the black and white colors. I'm changing my mind every day. I guess I'll have to decide come this Friday though. LOL

This being my 1st iPad, gotta be black.
White is just a little too flashy for me.

yup, what to choose? what a life eh?

i originally wanted white, with a white case, but i then considered the safe bet of black and black to be better - looks more traditional and less 'retro' and probably is more forgiving to dirt and scratches than the white version.

The color is under the glass so it can't get dirty. I'm getting white.

Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

The glass is on top of the white, yes. However, I would assume that the reason for using a black, rather than a white device is not, that the white color itself gets dirty, but that a white background protrudes any dirt on the surface. And white does have this effect, regardless of whether there is a layer of glass in front of it, or not.

Dirt doesn't stick to glass very well......
