Pros: Camera build quality, button location, flip out screen, the way it feels in the hand, high megapixel count, live view, it's a Canon.
Cons: High ISO means nothing when the result is garbage. I actually owned two of these, after returning the first one. It wasn't a fluke. The average consumer might not notice this, but a professional should. And manual mode only produced very average results at best.
Indoors with all the lights on, it would jump up to ISO 1600 (full auto setting). Yet, in a side by side comparison, my XTI would sit comfortably at 400 ISO. Why the difference? Manual settings with the exact same lenses between the two produced nearly identical images. The 60D was not perceptibly better. Actually, the 60D was still overly bright/noisy in comparison. For a brand new camera to produce results similar to, let alone worse than, a 6 year old camera is hugely disappointing.
Auto focus was not great either. Images weren't crystal clear. Colors not defined well.
Video is still not advanced enough yet to be more than a gimmick. Manually focusing video is frustrating. Makes the video feature almost useless.
Other Thoughts: For someone's first DSLR, I imagine this would do just fine.
But it's no upgrade.
