    Best bet is not to use time machine and just use the migration assistant it's much quicker and easier.

    And this way it will avoid any headaches with doing a lengthy recovery as well.

    Stupid question but is that an app I have to download or is that something that comes with the new MBP

    I used Migration Assistant from my Time Machine back up to my rMBP, no problems.

    Migration Assistant has been part of OSX for many years... its in Applications/Utilities. When you buy a new Mac it automatically comes up and asks if you want to migrate the first time you use the machine.
