It may be too early for some of these questions but lets give it a shot. 1. Are each of the Thunderbolt ports on their own bus or are they sharing one bus? 2. Are the Thunderbolt ports running PCI Express 3.0 or 2.0? 3. Are each of the USB 3 ports on their own bus or are they sharing one bus? 4. Is the HDMI port a 1.3 or 1.4? 5. What is the capacity left of the stock 256GB SSD when you first started your new Retina Macbook Pro? 215GB? Thanks to all those lucky ones who already have the new machines.
