Ipad 2 white version
hope you lucky lot are enjoying your new device. Another 2 week wait for us in Europe unfortunately.
I had a question for those who went with the white version. I read elsewhere some comments that suggest the white border is not ideal for a tablet. That its distracting to the eye, maybe when watching movies. Sounds weird but I can understand the reason.
So is anyone finding this issue?

I read about that issue too when I was looking into buying one, but when I stood in line and the Best Buy guy came around with the tickets, all he had left was white. So, I took the plunge. Using it nonstop for the last 24hours, I haven't noticed any issues whatsoever. No distortion or bleaching effect.
Loving my first apple device...

I got the black one and my son got a white one. He wishes he had gone black. I think it looks great, but he and I both find it distracting. He actually went to try to do an exchange today, but they had not stock at BB.
They have a white demo unit at our local BB too and it was being played with and it seems that many there like the looks, but most said they would go with black. Different Strokes for Different Folks!
Just glad mine is black, no offense to those of you that have white.

I'm going with a white Ipad (don't have it yet though to give input on how it will be once I have it), but for me, I plan on using the Ipad as an e-reader (was going to get a Nook Color, but decided for the little bit more, I could have an Ipad)......I think the white border when reading books will be less distracting than the black border (I played a little bit with the e-book reader app at the 2 on display at Best Buy, and I think I will be glad to get the white one too)

I initially ordered mine black, but when Apple cancelled my order, I opted for the white one ... Now I'm having second thoughts! I'm really confused about which one to get ... I'm just used to my black iPad ...
I wish I had one on display to try it out and make an informed decision.

Like I say it looks really sweet, but sitting around with it in the living room or bedroom that white almost glows. Glad I stuck with the black!
