For Christmas my wife bought me a new white retina mini. The screen is flawless and I love it. The biggest surprise to me is how much I like the white. If I had bought it, I would have bought a black one but she thought it would be something different. I'm now contemplating getting a white iPhone when I upgrade.

The only bad thing with the White is the black line around the screen... Nothing major but it would drive me mad as once you see it, it's noticeable where as with the black bezel you don't.

I made the mistake you would have made when I purchased the Mini & Air in black:D. I prefer the white because it is much easier for me to find the home button, and I am constantly hitting the wrong end when I hold the iPad horizontally. It is a minor annoyance, but after doing that 10x a day, it is beginning to wear thin.

Congrats - awesome present. My kids have white iPads - They seem to like that over the black that I have. Glad you are enjoying it

Great choice. iPads should be all white it's apples signature colour. Hate the black even on iPhones. They look android.
