Why did Apple decide to go completely white?

i'm probably posting this in the wrong area, but why did Apple choose white as it's main color. (Well it's main color for the consumer desktops and iBook) I mean they did a great job cause they make them beautifully but why didn't they go for like a black with a clear finish..that would look insanee

Cause white is hot. Clean, Simple, Perfect, Different. I think if it was not white it would be like everything else on the market. Not too interesting if it was black or grey like all the others

Black polycarbonate casing with the the grey trimming like it has now would be insanely hot :radioacti . Then have that Apple logo beaming off that black. The white drowns it out unless the lights are really low. Man BLACK would be so great. I think giving more options for color rather than making us pay more for it would be very good. Man, got me started. RED,BLUE, have matching keyboard with your color choice, that's definately the dream. Until then I guess I'm stuck withthis boring white.

Im glad its neither black nor any hippie colors! I definitely prefer the white look! It underlines the perfection, yet the simplicity...

Simple. Because IBM ThinkPads are black. :-)

Seriously, black would be cool but I really dig the white-- even moreso than the silver of the PowerBook. I never would have bought one of the "Tupperware colors" iBooks of a few years ago-- I just didn't like the way they looked.

Too bad a place like cafepress.com doesn't let you send in custom graphics to be placed on covers like these.

Yea but a dull black like all the other laptops out there now..the shape as a little odd too..but imagine black with the finish you have on your ibook..that would look nicee..but only in the U2 colors cause it would look weird to have a black case, grey insides, and a white glowing apple on the front

I like the white look but then I still like the look of my old imac 333mhz lime, still looks really cool and I think that their is a lot to be said for giving the costumer a choice of colours and if Apple wont do it then other companies will. Check this out : http://www.colorwarepc.com/

Before the first PowerBooks in 1991, all laptops were light grey/beige.

The original PowerBook 100-series was charcoal gray.

The ThinkPads were the first jet-black laptops.

PowerBooks were all dark colors until the first Titanium PowerBooks. I think Apple figured, after ten years, everyone was tired of dark colored laptops.

Maybe in 2011 we'll see soemthing different.

Only one feeling defines why white is the best. Go to the University library, dock your white ibook along with all other black machines and all heads turn around towards you. I have actually experienced it and it felt nice. That's why apple is different.

Black is a industrial colour. White signifies art, peace, harmony .......

Why do people buy Ferrari's and like em red........
