    Honestly, they're both the same. Just a handful of Wild Pokemon are different, and a couple legendaries.
    There's no less content in one than there is in the other. It's all based on preference.

    Apart from the dozen version exclusive pokemon, theres basically only 1 thing that makes a real difference.
    There is a place in the games that is completely different in each version.

    In Black there is a city with daily trainer battles and a market with rare items.

    While in White, there is a natural area with grass that can contain wild old pokemon, and sometimes rare items on the ground.

    Both vary from being empty forsaken places to having 25 people depending on daily interactions and entralink usage. In black those people are trainers you can battle, and in white every person means 1 kind of old pokemon in the grass.

    I recommend keeping both, because if your Black City/White Forest gets empty, you'll be able to refill it.
    That being said, if you really must keep only one:

    1- Keep Black, because I have White and then we can trade exclusives;
    2- Keep White, because everything in White (IMO) is better, except Black City is better than White Forest.

    Adding onto this, here are a few other things to consider.
    1. Black is more technology-based and White is more nature-based. This is also reflected in the version exclusives.
    2. The two games canonically take place in two alternate universes (unlike in the others, which possibly take place that way for convenience, these two games are canonically alternate universes. Even the movies reflect it). In game, however, it is implied that White takes place some time before Black.
    3. You can register both Black and White to your Dream World account at the same time, so why not?
