The new iPad – Black or White?

Oh my God!!

I think I am going to go crazy trying to decide whether to buy the new iPad BLACK or WHITE. Yes! You read it right. Since last few weeks, I’ve been contemplating which model (Wifi or Wifi+4G), which config (32GB or 64 GB) to buy. Once I decided to go for Wifi+4g, 64 GB model, I went to the store last night to finally buy it.

BUT. Solid confusion set in the moment I looked at the iPads. Black or White? Shit! Stuck again. I had decided for White beforehand and there was no question in my mind about it, but somehow it struck me that the White model on display had become quite dirty and somehow the elegance of the white, as seen on so many websites and ads, was totally lost. I couldn’t understand if the white would really look as great as I thought?

My sister was with me and suggested me to buy the white one only, since my mobile (Samsung Galaxy s2) is already completely black, and the black iPad would just look the same style. She was right and I gathered enough courage to stick to my initial choice of White.

Disaster struck when the store told me they were out of White ones. Hell!! Back to black. Now what? More confusion!! I couldn’t make up my mind. After all, I was about to spend 51,000 Rupees (it is much more expensive in India than it is in US) on a device in which I was not even getting the one color I had little confidence on.

So, I gave up completely and came back home, asking the store to inform me again when the White one is in stock. It’s an awful experience trying to decide this color because:

1. White is Nice and unique. Black is just like my current mobile.
2. White gets dirty easily, Black stays black.
3. White is distracting when watching pictures or movies, Black dissolves in the surroundings.
And the worst reason:
4. I want White. Maybe I should buy Black.

Back to square one!

Please guys, save me from this dilemma and help me decide by voting below. I cannot take this indecision anymore.

  1. I would definitely go for black, simply because the image on your iPad would stand out much more against a black bezel and there would be an illusion of better contrast. White is just prettier, but it wouldn’t do that resolutionary screen justice. Anyway, it’s just my opinion. Hope you enjoy your new iPad 🙂
