    So simple question....


    From everyone else's opinion, which do you prefer?

    I once upon a time, owned a white iPad 2 but the iPad Mini has a different build. I've heard about scuffing being seen on the black Mini.

    So I'm just curious, which do you prefer and which do you think would be the better choice in your opinion?

    WOW! what a great question, why hasn't anyone asked this before?

    I bought the white to avoid scuffs on the bezel.

    I prefer white. Looks "clean" and "pure" and classy to me. I also have a white iPhone 5 so it matches. Both colors will scuff but it's more noticeable on black because of the contrast of the scuff's color and the black finish.

    I have a white iPad mini. I love the anodised aluminium on the white one. It's got a silver/creamy look to it, which I love. It also matches my white iPhone 5 and white iPad (3rd gen).

    ----------

    Thanks, I ended up just buying a White 32GB one since it would go better with my white iPhone 4S 64GB.

    Black all the way - the black back makes it quite nice - normally I opt for white this time not

    Once you go black, you don't look back.

    Plus, white is for girls.

    The white's back kicks booty looks wise compared to the black. But I hate the front so I bought the black regardless of how much I like the back of the white.

    I would be concerned about light reflecting off the white bezel and screwing up my eyesight for viewing darker images. But, I have no idea of how pronounced that effect might be. Must not be too bad...(?)

    I honestly think the white looks better but alot of people give me hell for being a "guy" with a white ipad mini as opposed to a black one :confused:

    I quite enjoy the white, that's what I went with. I'm now wishing I went with the 64gb model but 32 will have to do haha.

    it varies for me day to day haha
    i think for me the black is the safer bet. some days though i look at the white one and think wow that looks way nicer. then other days i think nah, it's too flashy and not understated enough. I like how the black of the device sort of blends away and you dont notice it after a while. the white bezel always grabs your attention, eventually i get sick of it.

    im still a fan of the ipad2 design though. im not a fan of the scratchy anodized back. i like the contrast of the silver and black

    thats when you pull the lady gaga and say nah-uh i was born this way
