I say it boils down to preference. Much like my answer to PC vs Mac. If you like white, get it. If you are just dying to get black, do so. I love the look of both but I would go with white since it matches the color of a lot of stuff in my room. That is another thing. If your living space suits a white device like mine, I recommend that. But if you hang out in a stainless steel/black area, I would go with black. But again, it's your say. Just ask this to yourself: "What do I like most?"

I always go for the black iOS devices! As much as Apple are great with design, white on most devices just looks tacky and cheap. Black is sleek and stylish!

Hi there, I got a White iPad and I liked it much more than the black one and it also looks much smaller without the black frame. Go for White... A small correction: There are "no" iPad 3s. Logically there should be. But Apple has decided that we (the users) might get confused and might not be able to count passed # 2. So now we have iPad and it's designated as the "NEW" iPad. I guess the next iteration of this product will be The NEW NEW iPad and so on. :) Good luck and I am sure you will love that Retina display. it is amazing!

I would assume that you're a male (your name is Jacob...). Females tend to buy the white ones.

I'm glad I was able to help you make up your mind!

Thank you for you contribution, though i would have thought the white would have put a bit more value on it when reselling after a few years. Thanks again

They're both valued the same. I think that the black iPad looks so much better because when the screen is off it's just a huge black slate of glass, but with the white iPad, you have a screen and a border. It just doesn't look as luxurious.

white is not for females! And yes the white ones have a higher resale value. Trust me, drop selling iPads and phones is one of my favorite hobbies. I own a white iPhone myself and i believe it looks a lot sexier than the black one that EVERYONE has.

I'm just saying that a girl is more likely to buy a white one than a guy is. Also, there really isn't a difference in resale value.

White isn't for females... I don't know how that stereotype got on here. White is a different choice from the Piano black Apple has had for a long time.

Sure I own a black device, but white is a good option too.

Although I agree with the statement about colors not being gender-specific. It is not a stereotype, in the case of iPhones there were recent studies showing that women tended to prefer the white versions. It's a statistic and although not necessarily one that represents all of everyone, it is a statistic nonetheless.
