    As the RMBP doesn't come with FW and ETH, Im planning to migrate my 200GB stuff via my Time Machine backup external disk which is also USB2. Would it be a hell? To be honest I don't want to buy a TB-GigaEthernet adaptor, as I will use it once just for that purpose. Any other thoughts?

    You're only option is USB or an adapter.

    Personally with a new computer I don't use the migration assistant but rather restore only my data, i.e., reinstall my apps. That way I'm starting on a new computer with a clean slate :)
