So, I see no one actually pointing out what SP1 is doing, fixing, helping, specifically, just yea or nay opinions.
I myself would like to see answers that are adding to my knowledge, not personal opinions that offer no defineable information.
Is this not what the forum is for?
Check this link:

List of Hotfixes and Security Updates included in Windows 7 SP1 x64 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 x64 |

or this one at MS.

Download details: Documentation for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Release Candidate (KB976932)

This is the list for the RC and more was probably added for RTM

There are 625 updates and most of them are Hot-Fixes that were not in Windows Update.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

The only thing is, if you really know what's your machine is capable and what's not, then if you apply the right hotfixes not included in W.U, you can tell your not gonna need the Windows 7 SP1 for a while. The matter of requesting hotfixes goes pretty fast through mails, but they're are quite a lot. I think if your not gonna plan to install SP1 right away you should at least request 12 important hotfixes listed since one year.
