    Very comprehensive review, includes all 3 colours, the 2 standard configs, lots of bench tests and comparisons between the MBA and rMBP etc. AND lots of eye candy shots! There are even some heat tests included, interesting.

    NOTE: if you are waiting for your order to arrive (like me), try not to be jealous that he has THREE of them already!

    That was a really good extensive hands on review. Thanks for sharing.

    Speaking of hands, I kept wondering how big that guy's are, because they looked huge next to the rMB.

    This is probably a dumb question but how do we use an external battery for this macbook like you can with phones?

    Say I have a 16000 mah anker battery, would I be able to use it somehow to recharge this? What cables/adapters would I need? Would a USB to USB C cable work fine?

    Plug it in.

    Yes.

    A USB to USB C cable.

    Yes.

    I find it quite remarkable that the difference between the 480p and the 720p cameras is barely noticeable. This alleviates one of the biggest concerns I had about the rMB. It seems to be absolutely adequate for Skype/Facetime.

    It is adequate, but its not great. I tried it side by side with my iPhone 6 and the phone blew it away. Probably doesn't make that big a difference in day to day use but i would say its noticeable.
