    so far there have been yellow screens, flickering at all brightness levels except at full (especially visible with a solid gray background or similar), kernel panics related to Airport and sloppy thermal paste application.

    Haven't had any problems on mine. It idles hot, but thats to be expected of a dual core processor running at 2.4ghz almost silently.
    No trouble with the airport, no kernel panics to speak of. Works fine in windows and OSX.
    I havent heard any popping sounds coming through my speakers. Seems fine for analogue audio.
    No flickering, no yellow screen. I can't see any dead pixels either.

    I suspect the issues are very uncommon (other than the thermal paste application, but thats common among all laptops).

    If they are uncommon then I'm the world's most unlucky MBPSR-buyer. I've had three so far - all returned. First dodgy enter key. Second flickering at all brightness levels (and misaligned enter key). Third yellow bottom left screen (and misaligned enter key!!). I'm waiting for the 4th. My order is for a 2.2 glossy with non-standard 160gig HD and UK keyboard.

    Just the problems I've experienced:

    - kernel panics related to Airport.atheros driver
    - dead pixels
    - uneven illumination and bottom section of screen is yellow (nothing to do with the overall default Color LCD profile being too yellow)
    - battery discharges at a rate of approx 3 to 4% per hour during sleep
    - other very very minor things: crooked Return key, trackpad button keeps sticking and it rocks from side to side, one of the perforations in the left speaker grille hasn't been punched all the way through
