Comment: This was bought to give me access to work on-the-go. Its never had a major problem, but does get hot very quickly when running a more intensive task, such as watching HD videos, but it performs very well, even when running a virtual machine alongside Mac OSX.
I love the trackpad on the Macbook Pro, most other laptops I've tried have a small trackpad, which isn't helpful for me, but the design suits me well, although the fans at the back can easily be blocked when using on fabric surfaces, such as a bed.
Good: It just works .... loads up and runs like a machine should!
Bad: Bit tricky to use when you never used it before
Comment: Great piece of kit, tad on the pricey side but well worth it. Speedy bootup time, no AV or FireWall needed, found my wireless in no time, auto-updates without issues .... love the small things that make it great (iPhoto, Spaces, Dock and that awesome track pad)
I can't flaw it .... but I've not had it long enough to judge it from end to end.
