    I've just ordered a white iPad 3, and a friend of mine (also a Mac fan) mentioned that he heard that the white color of the casing could lead to color/backlight bleeding when compared to the black model.

    Have any of you faced the issue above or is it just nonsense? I remember SJ being particularly careful about ensuring that the white casing of iDevices do not let any light through...thanks for your answers..!

    "backlight bleeding", in these forums, usually means the LCD panel unevenly distributing the light which illuminates the screen. i don't believe that's what you are talking about, and even if you were, there would be no impact on that.

    in terms of the "white" color on the bezel not being opaque enough, and therefore potentially allowing light to seep through it, i believe that has not been an issue.

    someone please correct me if i'm wrong.

    Thanks; my question refers indeed to the second situation (I know what backlight bleeding means in the traditional sense)...the white not being opaque enough.
