Set it to 1280x720 HiDPI for a pseudo-retina mode.

I will be installing my 3rd party 16GB RAM and check out the performance of the GTX 680MX on high demanding games, as well as other benchmark tests.

Yes.

I first need to check for likely issues with these LG screens. Very important.

Also touch it.

I'll come here and tease whoever still has their order 'processing'.

Also, since I'll get it Monday and some people will have received it 3-4 days before that, I'll read the reports of the various problems and check my machine accordingly to see if I got a good one or not.

Take out my magnifying glass, inspect every square nanometer of it to make sure its flawless and that Santa's elves (Foxconn workers) aren't letting their standards slip.

Then I'll fire it up, take a look at the screen, inspect for dead pixels. To achieve this, I will fire up a series of super fast colour switching screens which will likely give my dog a seizure while rendering my eyes full of blood.

If I find one dead pixel, I will stomp my feet on the ground - careful to avoid my seizing dog and then call Apple to setup a return and buy another one.

If there are no dead pixels, and my dog is still alive, then I test for light leaks. To do this I shine a flashlight at the screen for 10 minutes, then turn off the lights -- oh wait, that's the glow in the dark test, I'm getting ahead of myself.

Where was I again?
