    You're picking a color. It's not an important decision. Pick one and pay for it. Done.

    I liked the White more than I thought I would, but went for black as I think it looks slick.

    Personal preference though- go check them out in store and see what feels more comfortable in your hand.

    Not very politically correct, but when I was ordering mine I asked my wife 'white or black?'. She replied 'white is for chicks'. 'Nuf said. I got a black one and I love it!

    Clearly your choice will shape the rest of your life. Choose wisely, this could really **** you up in the long run.

    i bought a white one and then wanted a black. after getting the black i went back to the white one. I personally like reading and surfing better on the white.

    If it bothers you that much, black is the more classic, standard look. White is more new and different. White will stand out to you more, black will just seem normal.

    I suggest doing an "eeny, meeny, mine, moe" counting rhyme and going with whatever one you land on at the end of said rhyme.

    Buy one. Put it in a case. You won't see the bezel anyhow.

    There is a reason why letterbox bars and most TVs released these days are black. Black disappears when you're focused on the screen. Go black ;)

    How do you manage making important decisions if this one is so hard for you?

    Theorecticly the black is probably better. But if you already have a black iPad 1 then get the white one. Just to mix it up a bit. :p

    I had a difficult time deciding and in the end I chose black. My main reason was the black border that shows up when you angle the screen. It is on the black as well, but isn't as noticeable because the bezel is also black. Also when the device is turned off it looks more sleek because it is one color. Just choose what you like and quit making justifications to get white because it makes you look unique…

    I got my wife the white one since it's more feminine and got myself the black one since it seems more masculine to me.

    Once you go black you never go back :p

    White is nice hardly distracting or feminine.

    And those who give you it should be black because you never see a black television set sorry to inform them guys:

    Sony
    Panasonic
    Philips
    Samsung

    ALL HAVE WHITE BEZEL TV's!

    May I point you to a few:

    Can anyone with experience with both give a detailed preference?

    Although that user posted white bezel televisions, you should note how the television market (by market I mean local best buy/TV stores) has, roughly estimating, 90+% black bezel TVs. Why is this...?

    People keep saying it looks cleaner, but over time, won't it fade and look yellow/brown?
