The design is perhaps the best of any laptop I've ever seen; it's really beautiful. The keyboard has a really nice feel to it, there is a good amount of space in between keys and they have just the right amount of click. The touchpad is really smooth, Apple is definitely doing the best at those right now; I've never seen a Windows laptop to compare with this trackpad. The display is really crisp (I upgraded to the Hi-Res version, but didn't go with the anti-glare due to hearing it didn't have as accurate color rendition). There are some issues with glare in direct sunlight, but I don't use it outside that much for it to make a difference. This computer is a beast in terms of performance; I upgraded the processor when I ordered it and upgraded to a 512GB SSD. HD video editing is no problem using Final Cut Pro X, and the only heat it lets off is when I'm doing that. Battery life, is pretty good, I can usually get 4-5 hours of pretty intense Internet usage while listening to audio, or watching and editing video. Software is awesome; it was already great with Snow Leopard (Lion wasn't out when I bought it), but Lion made it even better and faster.
