I am more interested in its RAW capabilities, than ooc jpg. I do not mind a bit of post, its main attraction to me is the portability/quality combination.

If I do get this camera it will be to use as a 2nd or 3rd camera for video interviews, and as a carry-around to events where I am not working and do not want to take my main Canon gear. Something you can stick on your belt and use instead of grabbing the mobile.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

I own use the Mk1 a lot.
The Mk2: bit better sensor, swivelmonitor- not enough tempting.
Mk3: a Viewfinder- very interesting!!!

I will definitely take a close look at this!

Let me get this straight, comparing with Canon G1X mark ii,
 . RX100 iii - smaller sensor (1 inch), 20 Megapixels
 . G1X ii - bigger sensor (1.5 inch), 15 Megapixels

But RX100 iii got better ISO (low light) performance??

I have version 1 and it is a great little camera - for stills and video. Three things I miss are all in the version III: built-in evf, tiltable screen and faster lense at the long end.

Sweet. 24mm on the wide end, 70mm f/2.8 (ok, f/7.6 equivalent), and only slightly larger than the MkII.  I think I might just have to get one...

Be careful Neuro, you might end up with A7r... ;D

If Neuro gets an A7r and jumps on the DR bandwagon I'll eat my hat.

I took a look at the RX100 models because I wanted something smaller for my upcoming vacation. I talked to Chris at The Camera Store (the guy who does these videos that are posted in this thread) and he didn't have much bad to say!

In the end the A6000 won me over with its autofocus and burst rate. It's just so entertaining to shoot!

The RX100 models are still fantastic and I'm now a bit bummed because I know I'll cave eventually and end up getting one too. :(

It sounds interesting, and I'm waiting to see one, but I really do not think that its the best vacation camera, the focal length is too limiting.  With the fast lens, it  would be fine indoors at close range, but not all vacation photos can be shot from up close.  The wide end is excellent for a small camera, so that would be useful for landscapes and group photos.
Even the conventional portrait focal lengths are missing.  Its really limited itself to a specialized niche.

You mean like the kit lens on the typical consumer DSLR niche?

Exactly, but  the Consumer lens on as DSLR its a starter lens, and you can get the body only, or buy additional lenses. 
 
With a point and shoot, you are stuck with the one lens, so a buyer needs to make sure that the lens has the right focal lengths for his usage.  The lens on the RX 100 III is not a low end lens, it's a very good one, just be sure that its what you need.
