    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.

    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 ;)

    Thanks for the list. It really does help..
    Hopefully Apple will pay attention to these problems and address them in their next release.
