    I decided about when they released the new MacBook Pro model that I was going to switch over, and since then, I've been keeping an eye on the forums here at at notebookreview for whatever problems people are having. I've been stashing the links to them, and I figured that I might as well share that.

    Here's a general list of the problems I've seen and links to them. I guess it'd be prudent to check all these things when you get one, and if you have a problem, see what people did about it.

    Of course, if you have anything to add, I'll keep an eye and edit.

    1. Heat Hot MBP Thermal Paste discussion discussion about smc Fan Control

    2. Light-Bleeding

    3. Uneven backlighting

    4. Dead Pixels Pixel poll App to test for dead pixels Dead Pixels, and Apple policy on it

    5. Sleep/Boot up/Shut down The BIG thread about it. Your best source about this problem Various other problems as well Randomly booting up Doesn't sleep and freezes afterwards Problem noted, no responses Draining battery while sleeping

    6. Warped Lid Problem and some home-brewed solutions It happened, little other news

    7. Yellow tint

    8. Static static from interference

    9. Flickering (mostly at lower brightnesses) Massive thread about this Just discussion

    Surveys alright poll, and very favorable small poll, but useful very good poll with details; I think I'm going to update the numbers on it, actually

    Hope this helps.

    Impressive list. Now you just have to extract all the reliable information from each of them and turn it all into a wiki page. haha. Good luck ;)
