When I saw it I instantly felt, oh, this is it? I thought it was a bit different kind of white. Its the opposite of the lets say magic mouse white, its more "painty" like as if it was a 3rd party paint job somehow. that and the details around the antenna dont feel as refined. (at least on the display model i saw since i hear there are some inconsistencies). I did not notice it too be thicker but it did feel like it was different symmetry somehow. I am trying to decide and here is my real issue: do I want it to match my mouse, keyboard, duet, white projector? or do I want it to match the MBP. I like the idea of all my accesories being white (phone, mouse, keyboard) and then I saw it and i thought... well maybe i could live with the black iphone. I got my iphone warranty swapped so now i am holding a super brand new and shiny 32GB black and I have a craigslist ad going for 600$ and if someone bites I will do it. but if not, i dont know how much money and hassle i want to waste. Black is cool too. I do meet a lot of people and they always notice my phone and so i am one of those guys so that is semi important to me. The black is already awesome but im afraid the white isnt awesome-er enough. Do you guys think the white is that cool? Plus theres the whole metro war right now. I would rather impress girls than guys but still... I need help deciding.
