    I doubt anyone has problems right now, and if they did immediately, they would probably return or exchange their MBP. the penryn model hasn't been out long enough for people to be getting tons of repairs :D

    Only thing is the fans are a bit loud. I guess thats normal..
    Except for that, perfect computer.

    Well i got the 2.5 15" the day after they came out and had to go through 2 exchanges because the first had yellowing on the screen then the second had the weird right fan buzz. I took it back and did a BTO 15" 2.6 7200RPMHDD and it gets here tommorrow, hopefully its flawless :)

    One Very Minor Problem

    Occasionally on a web page I get a double image or a very blurry line of double script? If I restart it will clear up, what is causing this? The only thing I have done is up the ram to 4Gb.

    Temperature Issues

    Ok, this is my first mac.. but i have to say.. the thing gets bloody hot!.. ive got a macbook pro 2.5 penryn. And there is no way that i could leave the thing on my lap for an extended period of time... But other than 3-4 OS X crashes requiring a hard reset,,, i cant get enough of the thing..

    Once I calibrated the washed-out yellow display, everything was/is perfect. Thanks to SuperCal, whites are white and bright.

    Bought mine the day they released it and im in love, it's a GREAT machine, It's much cooler than previous model and it doesnt make a sound! :) And between 42-48 degrees at all times (even after 3-4 days uptime) It's Great.

    My 17" runs very quite and it does something gets hot, but not much. Between 43-70 degrees, but mostly it is the GPU that gets hot, not the CPU.

    No major problems yet!

    My screen doesn't meet up like it's supposed to, but it's a minuscule difference and not even worth whine! I don't have the money yet to update my RAM, but when I do, it'll be so much better!

    Mine runs great so far. Gaming performance is just awesome for me. I´ve used a 4 years old windows macine before and the difference is just stunning. It runs a little hot though but I think that´s normal.

    after 3 machines.. first one was a SR, then the next two were Peryn machines... The machine is now running flawless. No problems what so ever.

    The first one was very cool but it had a buzzing speaker. I exchanged it and this one is pretty quiet but seems slightly warmer than the last one. The MBP is my first Mac, not sure how long usual charge time is but it seems kinda long to me.

    running great! When i still had 2gb in it.. and opened up multiple programs at once with just only ~40mb left..it was still smooth. Now with freshly installed crucial.. is a "screamer":D

    No issues to report so far!

    It does run a bit warm, but that's to be expected.
