Bokeh is the quality of out of focus rendering.  As this is completely opinion based, there is no firm definition. I for one prefer a softer smoother rendering, others prefer the squashed onion look of the old Jupiter lenses.  But either way it is up to each person and of course much to do with the kind of shot you are taking.  My all time favorite lens is the Leica 35mm Summicron.  It is known as the king of Bokeh for a reason...IMHO.
