I generally agree that forum responses can get sarcastic and condescending. But I think what people on this thread are trying to do is point out the absolute trivial nature of the question. It absolutely does not matter 1 bit in any way shape or form what color iPad one chooses...for business, for kids, for medical use, for grandparents, for a gift, for anything!

Several people, myself included, have given the opinion that the color is a complete personal choice and will not affect the business success, opportunities, advancement, etc. in a career.

I can't believe I am participating in this thread...back to more important things like determining whether I should buy blue or white Kleenex when I go to the store this afternoon.

In other words, don't worry about the color so much. Worry about if you should even be showing up with one. Let the firm provide your toys.

Don't be in a rush to try to implement tech into your job at first. They have an IT person that worries about that, not first hires. Worry about your job. Try to keep work at work.
i havent entered the real business world yet but i appreciate your input from your experience! looks like iil just pick the one that looks most interesting to me and that'l be the white ipad mini.

The color is the most important thing in buying an iPad. If you buy the wrong color, you will lose all your friends, and, without doubt, lose you job. The wrong choice is a sign of total incompetance. How well you do your job means nothing. Your ability to perform the tasks assigned to you mean nothing. All that matters is the color of your iPad.

I'm sorry, but I'm not allowed to tell you the RIGHT color, but you better not make the wrong choice!

So take care...color is all...

White or black both look professional to me. Now if you we're talking the same colors as the new iPod touches, then I would agree that they are not professional looking.

Wow! You are comparing a white painted door to a white Apple product. The colour IS UNDER THE GLASS! It does not turn yellow....check the forums here. You are a wind up merchant for sure! White MacBooks may have discoloured over time but the manufacturing in iOS devices is totally different.

Thread on this forum is getting funnier and funnier each day, its like there is really nothing to ask about Ipad.

So this dude is worry about which Ipad color he should buy to use in the business school!!! I say you focus more on the content of your study and i bet people wouldnt even give a dang what color your folder is.

So how is that not asking if white was the right color (for business)?

I think, in general, white does tend to be more eye-catching, and if you are wearing dark business suit and carrying all dark accessories, then a single white item might stand out and look out of place. However, it's just a single item, and if you are acting very bussiness-like and professional, then nobody will pay any attention to it. If Tim Cook walks into a room nobody is going to care if he has a white or black iPad, they are going to be just looking at him. So just get whichever color appeals to you more, and then forget about it.

As Night Spring points out above, you did seem to be asking for an opinion...ironic though my opinion might be.

Does the OP plan on using a case or cover of some type? There are plenty of covers and cases available that would make either color of mini look professional.

I work for a Fortune 500 company with a pretty formal environment. We were actually just issued white Minis by the company with black covers. I'd say that this is professional enough.

I went white on my mini and my iPhone so it would match my Mac air, and my white shirt, in court.

If my ipad were lime green, it would still be professional how I use it. When I'm using it to read my notes for an argument in a hearing, the mini seems very professional. I can find stuff on it faster than the opposing counsel can in their paper files.

I think white is more what I want so I got it. Easy enough.....

Go black. If you're wearing a black suit, it compliments the suit, and isn't flashy like with white. You don't want to appear unfashionable do you? Business is all about fashion, except in the fashion industry, where its all about brains.

generally when u think business, i think black for some reason.
I'm sorry but you must be joking here! If you study business and want to be professional (or look - either way) and you can't simply decide on a colour of a device then I do not want to see what kind of a business man you will end up being. For crying out loud, how do you wanna run a company if you can't do such a small decision as what colour for the ipad.

Black & White are the most neutral colours. They are each at the end of the colour spectrum. You can't go wrong with either yet you "waste" your time here.

An iPad's color doesn't have bearing on anything in the business world. None whatsoever. Pick what you want.
