    Did anyone install the update yet? Any improvements? Any downsides? I am hesitant about updating my 2011 Core i5 MBP model.

    Installed the update. The battery life and boot times don't seem to have improved at all :( Oh well, there's always 10.7.2

    @i4k20c
    The wifi dropout issue has completely gone away for me ever since I upgraded to Lion. Try resetting the PRAM as EEXOOO suggested.

    I installed it. Had a small hiccup when my MB Pro 17 hung on a restart straight after installing the update. Apart from that it is all good. Not that I had ny problems before the update anyways.

    You should get rid of it.

    I installed it last night. It made my late 2010 15" MBP take 15 to 18 minutes to boot and just as long to shut down. I tried everything I could think of to fix it but just formated the computer to start over. I did down load the program to make a recovery usb stick. What a waist of time the computer still has to redown load Lion for the reinstall.

    After update, repair disk permissions and PRAM reset if you encounter any issues. I do that after each update regardless.

    The only problem I had been having with my month old 2011 MBP was intermittent WiFi disconnects. This update seems to have fixed that! Took only a few minutes to download and install, very impressed after years of annoying constant Windows updates "installing update 1 of 27" or whatever, usually took 20 minutes to shut down when it did this. Loving OS X!

    Regarding wifi issues, anyone try putting the laptop to sleep then waking it up while Time Machine is backing up to a Time Capsule? I just tried it and it wouldn't wake up - had to reboot. Seeing if anyone else can replicate.

    My main wifi issues from before were also when Time Machine was in the middle of a backup to a Time Capsule. It's a shame cause this worked perfectly in Snow Leopard.
