I've been leaning toward white. Please spare me your judgements about my masculinity. I prefer how white looks. But I also care about contrast ratios and especially 'distractions' that John Gruber discusses in his recent review of iPad 2: "... The white bezel looks good, aesthetically ... But, I found the white bezel distracting. With the black, the frame disappears from mind when you’re using the iPad. With the white, it always seemed like I was looking at a white frame around the screen. There’s a reason why movies are letterboxed with black bars, not white ones, and why most TVs are framed by black." This resonates with me a little, but when I watched a couple of the Guided Tours on the iPad 2 site, the white bezel looks totally usable to me - nothing distracting at all. I know this is a subjective thing, let's try to keep the thread focused on visual performance vs aesthetic preferences - how does the bezel choice actually effect usage?
