I've waited over a year for this announcement, and have been checking almost every single day, collecting all the rumors and going crazy, like a lot of people here, until the announcement was finally made on Mon. I was ecstatic. I'm using a 2008 MBP that has been on its last legs for a long time. I've saved my money for this moment exactly, and now I can feel good about pulling the trigger . . . Except that my friend, who got me into Mac products, knows of my wait, and who also needs a laptop replacement himself, has told me to hold off because the 1st gen laptops, he says, always have bugs and glitches and issues. Is this true? He said it like it's a given; like there is no question they'll have issues. If it's true, what are examples of issues to expect, from past units? Are they bad enough that they're worth holding off for next generation units for? I don't know if I can afford to. As well, why doesn't Apple test their products to avoid such an issue? If it has gotten to the point where it's expected to have problems with their products when they ship, shouldn't that be something to work on to try to stop?
