    I had a black iPad 2 and a white Mini...the white never really grew on me, so I went with Space Grey for my new Air.

    I was hoping for gold. Not really. Space gray. Pretty slick.

    I decided to switch it up and get white. I was worried a little in the store when I saw the black airs and thought they looked better. I like the white a lot though so no regrets.

    Apple tablets are the only ones I prefer as White. Phone (Galaxy S4) is black as were my previous iPhones. I have no idea why... :D

    White here. Used to have black but white seems (IMO) a lot more clean and sleek looking, and matches other Apple products I own.

    No regrets, loving the iPad Air!

    I got the Black one. I was sorry to see the slate back from the Mini go, as I much prefer it to Space Grey, but since I immediately put it into a Smart Case, the back doesn't really matter to me anyway.

    My last iPad was a mini which was white but went with a black/space grey to match my iPhone and it's actually taking a little getting used to. I just may prefer a white tablet and I black phone.

    Space 32, not to big of a fan of white tablets as they stand out more in public.

    Black! I can't stand the white iPads for some reason. Besides, my convertible is all black, so I can lay my iPad on the front seat with the top down, and it'll be invisible. :D

    I always go black. I tried a white iphone 4s and realized its just not the color for me.

    Always black. I have never liked an electronics device in white. Probably explains why I liked my Sega Genesis over Super Nintendo. Why I switched my launch Dreamcast for a Sports Bundle, and why I bought a new 360 as soon as the Elites came out.

    So no regrets at all. Black shows dust and fingerprints more than white. And yet I never regret the option.

    After black iphone and black ipad 3, this is my first white ios device.

    I think the white air looks more luxurious because the silver chamfered edge shows more prominently than the edge on the black/space gray.

    One other major benefit of white air over black is that the white bezel does not reflect ceiling lights like my black ipad 3 did. It would be annoying to see my ceiling spot light reflected in the bezel as I tried to read. The white appears to be less reflective.

    White for me. Doesn't show finger prints. The space gray is sharp looking though. My white one looks great in the blue case.

    Space grey for the black bezel, had a white iPad 2 before I swapped it for black. I think the white bezel is distracting when watching video or reading at night time.

    Coming from a white ipad and white iPhone I firmly believe that space gray is the new black.
