This is just an informal poll to see how many of you are having one or more of the problems reported so far on the MBP.

Just so far I noticed a slight buzz from the left side of the keyboard...knock on wood.

Since I got my MBP yesterday, I am able to add to this poll as well. I have the Airport disconnects on battery issue. People on various forums keep saying it's an Airport firmware problem, but I am not convinced. It seems to me that if it does not occur with the power charger plugged in, then it is most likely a power management issue.

Edit: Oh, before I forget, I also ran into a bunch of folks at apple.com forums that reported an inability to read or burn a DVD in the MBP's new drive. So, if you have that problem please just post it here. We ran out of poll options, the maximum is 10. That is not a good news statement for the MBP.

It happens to me even when it's plugged. The airport drop happens quite randomly. I really hope a simple firmware update will solve the problem.

I'm with you there. I think this will turn out to be the much more common MBP problem.
