    Get the one that you like more, nothing special about black or white.

    FWIW (if you're looking for opinions)...I find black to be more masculine than white. But in the big picture...it's sort of a coin-toss.

    p.s. More functionally speaking...black hides dirt better...and we all know how dirty our fingers can get (look at folks computer keyboards after a couple years)...yuck!

    I would get black. My sister used to have the White MacBook, and it got really dirty. The only Apple device I liked in white was the iPhone 3GS. But it is really personal preference.

    Good luck!

    I'm having the same issue. And while the White may show dirt better, wouldn't it help hide fingerprints better?

    I'm leaning towards black currently, but that seems to shift every couple of hours or so. I'll have to wait until I get a hands-on next Friday.

    Yes I was going to mention that in my earlier post as well. Black is better to hide dirt...but white is better for hiding fingerprints.

    I like white, cause it feels like a throwback to the classic iPods. I really miss the white products, outside the Macbook and the non-music playing devices.

    Except both the black and white are under the glass, so it's really no different this time.

    I knew someone would say this. In either case (white or black) it's true the glass is what's dirty...but the white background will help make the dirt on the glass more visible.

    But either way...a wipe with a cleaning cloth will fix things.

    How about a zebra striped option for those who can't make up their minds.

    My vote FWIW is for black.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
