What color is it?

White == hard to get working.

Black == not so hard to get working.

I think it's because the white one will only use the IBM OS while the 
black one  can run other things.  Unless you have a tape of the OS in 
question you probably won't be able to do anything with it.

At least that's my (very) limited understanding of the situation.
