    The whole device looks slick compared to my old black iPad when browsing and using email.

    Opposite is true for movies.....but I've never watched a movie on my iPad!

    Funny how colored bits of plastic can change your perception of the entire design.

    hmmm, my white iPad still looks slick when watching movies ... and watching the movies is still the same great experience as with the old iPad1.

    Personal references I guess.
    To me the white one just looks cheap.

    Yup. I got my white iPad and web browsing (and using Flipboard) are all great. I just much prefer the white one in general. Its alot more modern and stylish looking to me.

    I originally bought a white and was happy with it, but something was gnawing at me so I bought a black one to try to decide which to keep. My conclusion was that, while holding the white one, you notice the frame, but while holding the black one, you only notice the screen. The white definitely looks slick and "different" and everyone will know for sure that you have a new ipad2, but the real question is "did I buy an iPad so others would notice it, or did I buy an iPad so I would enjoy using it." If enjoying using it includes other's opinion of me, then white would have been right for me. But, alas, in the end, I packed my white one up and returned it to Target. Gotta love that 90 day return policy.

    I went with black just because I found the white one very distracting.

    It's called a credit card. I'm returning the white one. No cash out of pocket.

    I am from Israel - Which is a Sunny country.
    At one time, my iPad didn't like the hot weather, where the black iPad absobe the heat of the sun ( more then the white I assume), and shut it self down.
    Got that nice warring Temperature !!
    So I assume White has also a very practical use for me here.

    Girlfriend loves the white, I love the black. I think it's personal preference.

    For me the black makes the screen and colours "pop" more, and looks better quality. The white seems yellowish/cheapish, and when the screen is on I can see a bit of black border inside between the screen and edge. Less "perfect" for me.

    Just picked up my iPad 2 after doing my first "queue for an Apple launch" (launched yesterday in Thailand). LOVING how snappy it all seems - no lag on opening the multitasking tray!!! Glad my iPad is finally better than my iPhone at things again!

    Now waiting for a jailbreak...

    I'm relatively sure that the screen itself will still absorb a great deal of sunlight. I live in a extremely sunny part of the world as well and have actually never had my iPad shut off.

    I know how hot it can be over there.

    Personally I prefer the white because I find it makes the screen much cleaner and nicer lookin but it really goes down to personal opinion and you really need to try out both black and white to decide. :)

    I actually prefer black because I think the opposite is true. Both of them have a black border that is visible where the bezel and screen are glued together, but is much less noticeable in the black since it is the same color.

    Thankfully that difference was there because I had a hard time deciding between the black and white…
