That might be true for some games and videos, but when doing anything with a light colored background, like reading, mail, surfing, etc. the black background will be more noticible. So it really depends on what you do primarily on your iPad.

Im looking at the borders on my MacBook Pro, Black. The boarders on my 27 inch iMac, Black. The border color of almost all TVs ever made, Black. In design applications (Photoshop for example) there is an option to do a quick background matte to see how a photo or image looks in its truest color, guess what color it uses for that background matte, Black. Black is the most non intrusive color to "frame" things without visual distraction.

I went with black because I find the white bezel distracting and "cheaper" looking...

White

I think I will go with the white version on every ipad model because I feel that white looks better and more fancy than the black one. The black one is very easy to get bored of your ipad. White is not a distraction for me anyway.

I've always had black phones, iPads, and MacBook... I had a black LTE mini but gave it to my wife. I just picked up a white mini which goes nicely with my white iPhone 5 and Mac Book Air and even my Apple mouse. A bit anal I know.

Just ordered a white one for my son, but he will have it in an Otter box type case so it really doesn't matter.

Black. I like my devices to disappear as much as possible. It's all about the content and apps. The black/slate happens to look pretty awesome though.

I don't have an iPad yet. I am waiting for the updated edition. When available it will be black. Why black? Because black fits my masculine side and black projects class and style. That's how I see it.
