I think the white will definitely be more scratch-proof than the black.
not sure how the 'black slate' works, but my BlackBerry Storm2 had the slate aluminum back and it scratched easily. I'm sure the iPhone5 build quality is better though (although, when it comes to hardware build quality, BB has been solid)

I have to admit, this concerns me a little too. Hopefully the aluminum on the white version is fairly scratch resistant. If so, I'm going naked with this one.
I just remember my 2nd Gen iPod Touch getting scratched to heck on the back, and I'm hoping this won't be the same way.

My brother just got his a few seconds ago and is still at the store, he just "scratched" the back of it with his finger nail and this was the result...this scratch issue thing is a load of bullish*t if you ask me.

Yeah, the only thing i noticed when playing with the demo last night at work (sooooo excited was I, it was like Christmas morning) is the black seems to be a fingerprint magnet, even the back plate. Don't know if the white will be the same.
