    No problems here, but I just bought my MBP and instantly did the upgrade with the included disk. The only this I have read that I aid attention to was sharing my wireless connection with a PC and how to make it work in SL.

    I have been spending a lot of time reading here, and also at various mac forums on the internet to see what people are saying. Seems to me that the most recommended method is to do a complete wipe and install.

    I haven't had many problems with 10.6.1 other than occasionally getting the Grey Screen of Death when I click a topsite. It's not nearly as buggy as Leopard was.

    The only thing that I have noticed is that my macbook's battery actually held a better charge under Leopard than it has under Snow Leopard. I have checked my battery life and from the research I have done it is still holding a really good charge and has had around 430ish cycles....with Leopard I could get 4-5+ hours and with Snow Leopard I only get around 3ish hours before I have to recharge. Really frustrating.

    Im in the same boat but I just blame the battery's age. they tend to degrade very rapidly.

    Everything is working perfectly. Only program that was crashing and giving me the spinning beachball was Firefox. I fully erased the program from my computer and then reinstalled, everything is working perfect now.

    99.9% great. However, I miss my RSS feeds in Mail. For some reason SL is all fubared with that. Might be fixed in 10.6.1, but I have already made the transition to Vienna. Otherwise I could not be happier.
