MacBook Pro: wait for rev 2

Steve Jobs was never as keen on quality and reliability as he was on vision and style. The new Intel Macs are no exception:
MacBook Pro noises, LCD, touchpad, other problems - The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)

I know, I should have "anticipated" "problems" with my "new" MacBook Pro. That this should be "expected" and "usual" and "jeezus man, what were you thinking?" But I want to make one thing clear: Apple cannot use "well, it's a first Rev." as an excuse for sloppy manufacturing and hiring a Quality Control team so high on hallucinogens it can't distinguish an inconsistent backlight display from a colorful dragon strumming a guitar.
I think the new Intel iMacs may be ok, they're basically a continuation of an older design. I would not buy a MacBook Pro.
