SB6141 Black / White

AnnoyingCustome 11 14 August 9, 2015 at 02:24 PM
Is there any difference besides color between the SB6141 black and white model? I've noticed a price difference on some places, usually with the black cheaper, but couldn't figure out if there was any difference internally or if one was an old model and another is the new model.

Thank you

They're the same. You do have to watch that you aren't looking at a 6121 instead.

Color.

People pay different prices for different colors of the *exact same* item all the time - think smartphones.

That is what I thought, but just wanted confirmation. Thank you both.

The white model is probably not as common thus the price difference. White plastic is harder to make, and keep white over time. Apple has struggled with this over the year.

The white one is actually cheaper right now.

Huh.

I can speak from experience that on the processing side, anything BUT black is more difficult from a design perspective to make aesthetically perfect. In other words, black hides a lot of sins.
