    I tried to get one on launch day but then gave up and ended up thinking I would keep my iPad 1 for longer. Since then I've felt the urge multiple times but finally gave in and got a white 16gb. I figured since it's my portfolio (fashion photographer) I needed to have the best available. The minute I opened the box I was wondering why I didn't upgrade sooner - it's beautiful!

    The magazine I shot for has an iPad version and honestly reading with the white is much more pleasant.

    The upgrade is well worth it, and I can't understand why people consider the iPad 2 as a 1.5 product.

    I agree. Not sure either. It's silly since I do believe that the iPad 2 just purely on the design aspect is already a huge step ahead and I would have just spent the extra cash based on the design change alone.

    I am completely in the same position as you. Decided to hold off on upgrading and am now very happy I did. (Just got my 2 on Friday.)

    My iPad 1 will be for "at home" use, and the 2 will go on the road with me.

    Why do almost all the photo's I see from people with iPad's in white make them look a creamy/dirty/yellowy white?

    Why are they not a clean crisp bright white?

    I think its the light, since if you look at Macbook pro it has the same tint.

    To OP: Congrats on the Purchase, Hope to pick mine up soon.

    As a fashion photographer, doesn't that god awful camera on the iPad 2 piss you off?

    Yeah my room is light a bit warmer than normal - I prefer warmer lighting anyways - but overall the white is really beautiful and is a very frosted white.

    It does - but luckily the iPhone 4 saved me...sigh, can't have everything I guess. What I really want is a retina display - in fact I would have paid up to $300 more just to have a retina display on this portfolio viewing reasons.

    Hahaha should I get partial commission on it?!

    iFolio is great but I still like iPhoto - I switch between the two sometimes
