    I wasn't able to get an iPad on Friday due to other obligations. So Sunday I had some free time and started scouring Craigslist. I found a white 64GB model that the guy wanted very close to cost for. I decided to go with it. I had all intentions of buying a black one, everything else I have is black. Black iPad 1, MacBook Pro with black cover, and black iPhone 4.

    I must say, I am in love with the white. It took a little time to grow on me, but something about it is cool looking. I have not noticed any visual problems like others have mentioned. It is just as easy to view as my iPad 1. So, if any of you are considering a white iPad, go for it.

    Thanks for this... I was wondering what people were thinking. I really kinda wanted to get a white one, but was unsure. I might go for it.

    I am a photographer and would be using it to show a lot of photos... Do you think one would look better? I personally think the white somehow makes the screen look higher in terms of resolution...but I'm just weird :p

    I have zero complaints about the white bezel, I don't find it distracting at all and best of all shows a lot less fingerprints.

    How is the white for reading? I'm wanting one to use for all my engineering textbooks and I was thinking the white would help with reading under fluorescent lights.

    personally, I'm not a fan of the white because it looks too much like a kindle and makes it look cheap.

    Worst case you can just return it to Craigs List -- they have a 14 day right :eek:

    I did the opposite, had a white and found it so distracting I could not bear it. returned it for a black, so much happier.

    it's what I'm used to but I'm glad folks are lovin it, not for me!

    I hate it, it looks cheap and it is making it hard for me to get the 32GB Black iPad 2. They could have doubled the production of Black. :mad:

    Was not a fan of the white at all in the store.

    But if you like it, that's all that matters. :)

    I thought long and hard about the white, and I'm glad that I got it: I love the way that it looks both with the screen on and off. It doesn't distract me while reading, looking at photos or video. I like the black, too, but I'm glad that I got the white. Spend some time with the demo models in the store. You could get the white and return it in 14 days if you don't like it.

    In the Apple store, the white looked more like a cream color, but at home and out and about, the white looks bright white.

    Yea, once Apple said there will be a White iPad, I knew I wanted it for some reason, as I'm usually like my electronics in black, or silver (Macbook style). And the white iPad2 does look great next to my Macbook also.

    I do love the look of my iPad2 and have had no issue's either (knock on wood) so far.

    I am also loving the white iPad! I'm so glad I went with my gut reaction and didn't allow my mind to be changed after reading these forums. I don't find the white distracting at all. In fact, I don't notice the border at all when I'm using it--I'm too busy actually looking at the display. I'm sure some have gotten accustomed to a black border, so it's easy to get distracted by something else. So maybe being a newbie is on my side in this regard.

    I also don't see how an iPad can possibly look cheap. It's so beautifully built and made. But, that's just my opinion. It's all a matter of personal preference and for me, I'm SO happy I went with my first choice.

    However I might buy a 16 gb for the kids and it will be black so we have one of each.

    Exactly the same here. I wanted white so bad. I got it and absolutely could not stand it. I thought it was hideous in person and very distracting. I really couldn't stand how it would look yellow under certain lighting either. I was lucky enough to exchange for black and all feels well again. Apple you can't give me so many choices, it's just so hard!

    I feel the same way! I was on the fence until I saw the demo white unit at the store. It is perfect and looks absolutely amazing with colorful homescreens.
