I plan on getting the black one as well, as I have always owned the black in the past, however, the white may be the one to appeal to me this time. But I will most likely get the black as it is all that is available atm.The white looks clean and Apple used it for most of their marketing this year.
I still bought a black one though.
This was my thought too. I had black for iPad 1 and iPad 2. I decided to mix it up and got white. I don't think it's distracting at all.I tend to see a lot more white ones where I live. But, in my opinion, black is better for watching movies and viewing photos. Less distracting than the white border.
If the iPad New bezels are like the iPad 2, then white bezels are matte while black bezels are glossy. Thus, the black bezels probably reflect more light (you can see your reflection in them--but not the whites).Black absorbs light.
White reflects light.
White = less light absorption = lower temperatures
Not just your opinion. This is pretty much FACT. Another fact, though, is that most people are sheep. If Apple presented it in yellow with pink polka dots people, even posters here, would say:I tend to see a lot more white ones where I live. But, in my opinion, black is better for watching movies and viewing photos. Less distracting than the white border.
