The 3 year warranty is the plus point. Other than that you can get the MacBook Pros cheaper elsewhere and get a 0% credit card over 2 years.
Stormfront... reminds me of a white nationalist group
I can certainly say I've not had any of those issues as of yet. You've got a 12 months warranty so if you are thinking of getting one, I wouldn't worry. My main issue is just I'm still to get use to the new Trackpad and keyboard - I still prefer the older Macbook's keyboard and trackpad.
