    So, which are you going for?

    Personally, while I love how the Silver looks a lot like the first-gen iPad, I can't pass up how sleek the Space Grey is, and how nicely it'll match my MBP and iPhone XS.

    I'm getting Silver personally but it will be covered with the gray smart folio case I'm buying with it anyway :p

    Space Grey. This version looks much darker and makes the Space Grey on my 10.5" look Silver.

    The silver back looks better, but when viewing from the front, the space grey edges around the screen look better.

    Is the space gray the darker space gray or the lighter space gray of recent iPads?

    True, but I’ll be happy with either. Should match the iPad nicely.

    May not matter if Apple doesn’t offer a Smart Cover only, which is possible since some have said the magnet position has changed to accommodate the new pencil. Can only wait and see, I guess.

    Haven’t been following the Pro announcement news closely, but what happened to the gold and rose gold?

    As someone who just bought.... was forced to buy a black iPad for the first time since ever (iPad 2)... I'm pretty unhappy.

    This is the first launch since iPad OG that there wasn't a white front option. I had gold on my last iPad and loved it.

    But I care less about the back because its gunna end up in a case for its life. I'm left looking at a weird black iPad.

    Silver, and I’m waiting to see what cases/smart Keyboard Folios third parties come up with.

    Usually go with space gray for my iPad, but this year ordered a silver 12.9. Something different.

    this... is something I’ve never heard before.

    There is a reason they don’t make TVs it White bezels.

    It looks ugly. I know it’s a matter of opinion but the bezels kind of fade away when they are black. When they are white it’s impossible not to see them.

    Never in my life have I heard someone refer the black front iPad as weird looking. In fact, it’s the exact opposite.
