    So, I have both colors sitting in front of me, both units with Warranty until August 2012, and 0% to very, very minimal Light Bleeding. Which one do you recommend? Does the White one's edges get dirty, bc the White does look slick.

    both are the same machine with just the bezel as the only difference. i dunno, which one do YOU like? having a poll like this is like being asked to recommend my color choice to someone else so why not just pick one over the other and be done with it:confused:

    We've had tons of threads on this.

    To summarize the main points, I think:

    -They're both under glass, so neither gets any more dirty than the other, but the black one may show fingerprints and smudges more.

    -The white one tends to frame read content such as web pages and ebooks better, since to the dark-on-light content flows more seamlessly into a light backdrop.

    -The black one tends to frame watched content such as movies and TV shows better, particularly in a darker room, and since widescreen content gets letterboxes.

    But they're the same device. Choose whichever you prefer.

    I have both of them. No Dilemma there.

    White gives me the new at first , but i prefer black after.
    Then again i think white looks better at times.

    Best to have both.

    I got the black one and I love it. I do a lot of writing and I think it makes the text pop a little bit more. I also think that black looks classier. That's just my opinion though. :D I have the black iPhone, a black car, a black cat, and I like my coffee black... Hmmm noticing a trend!

    White you cannot see fingerprints on the bezel, as expected. But, even being the owner of the white, I would have much rather been able to get a black on launch day. They ran out of em

    That's good to hear, to me fingerprints won't make much of a diff. as I will have a screen protector on it. The only thing I noticed was the White's bezel edges tend to get dirty, while I was in the Apple shop this past weekend, I noticed that all their white model's sides, the side-strip between glass and aluminum were all dirty.

    My opinion is that the white one looks a lot better. Every person is different, but getting the white iPad was an easy choice for me.

    Ok, went with the Black one, the White looks good up front, but from the sides white/silver do not mix very well. Also, I sold the White one, so there is that...

    Had to go with white bc it's all they had when I bought mine.

    Anyone have a black and want to do a straight up trade?:D

    Same here. However I think the white is nice because it is only found on the iPad2 model.

    Black,black,black! Unless you really like the white color. The white destracts you from the screen to much and sometimes can even make the screens rem dimmer because of the contrast.

    How could it? The paint is under the glass so it can't get discolored.
