    apparently people have had a lot of problems with their MbP's

    AirPort does not automatically rejoin a preferred network after waking up from sleep mode. This does not happen with my PowerBook. Settings are the same.
    AirPort would drop down to nearly 1 block randomly once in a while. This also does not happen with my PowerBook.
    At the lowest screen brightness setting (one block), the LCD's backlight flickers noticeably. This is pretty annoying.
    Heat is a big issue. The MacBook Pro gets so hot that I cannot place it on my lap if I'm wearing shorts. And even if I am wearing pants, it's still very uncomfortable. Using the AC power, the palm rest area becomes very warm, and the area above the F keys is very hot. I do not notice this with the PowerBook.

    stuff like that. i have some of the airport issues and i definitely have the heat issue. i'm wondering if i should bring it in *now* or wait a few months to bring it in once the problems are like...deeeefinitely worked out.

    i can deal with it, but i dont want to deal with the repair process prematurely
