I've had an issue where my computer backs up almost 15 GB of material several times a day, even when I haven't done anything to it. Very annoying. Apple just had me completely erase my Time Capsule and re-do everything (awesome) and it worked for a while, but its back again.

Otherwise things have been pretty great for the most part. I'm sure I have a few issues here and there, but I can't remember them at this moment.
