I find white bezels to be too reflective and distracting. Especially in well lit environments. Biggest reason for me to avoid white. It still looks cool though but dark bezel better imo.

Not true, I live in Australia. This country has some of the hottest days... Never had a problem with my Note 10.1 getting hot...

Its not about actual heat... its about sunlight. Its a scientific fact that darker colors absorb more light (light = energy = heat) than lighter shades.

Second this. My mom got a black minivan, aka the Mercury Monterey , and it attracts the sunlight like anything else. Especially if the seats are darker, and its worse if they're leather. It looks nice , but it sucks in the summer unless the car is parked under some shade. The same principle appleis to anything darker.

Read the third comment by ProfHoff. It has to deal with darker colors being better absorbers of light and thus, radiation/heat. This is why when people live or traverse desert or any hot climates where solar exposure is the constant and fatal , they are usually clothed in white or lighter colors since those do not attract as much heat . Just get anti glare screen protectors and white instantly becomes the best one to travel with, whether you'e in the cold or not.

I got the white, then got an orange gel case. The orange, white & black screen looks great

I have the grey. The white does look like the ipad, and scuffs and scratches are more noticable.

I don't think that applies as much as you think, I tend to look at my screen more than the back of my tab...
Granted it may get a bit hotter on the surface to touch but how many people sit in the sun using their tablets? I use my tablet outside very rarely, the screen can be a bit hard to see in sunlight but I can say that my tab has never overheated...
The other thing is, this is generally a moot point, I've seen people with the white Note 10.1 put it in a black case, you can't tell me that my Note gets hotter in my light brown leather case than theirs in their black silicone case?
