There are already three posts showing a simple (all components on one server) screenshot install. The big thing I am seeing from these is that there are new prerequisites which need to be checked and installed.

There is a bunch of useful information as usual from Kevin Holman
And Graham Davies (MVP) has setup a new blog to deal with OpsMgr 2012 posts – http://www.systemcentersolutions.com/2011/07/whats-new-in-scom-2012/
Some nice snippets of information.
There is a lot if useful information in the docs from the download.

Plenty to read and it is needed as the requirements for SQL and Windows to install 2012 on is much higher.
