 Retina 17" MBP!!!1!!  
I hope so, my mid-09 17" MBP is officially obsolete in a few days   Edit: just read the rest of the thread, woo-hoo! Thanks for posting that Quadra.
The pentile screens in earlier Galaxy phones were clearly inferior to the screens in iPhones. Even the S5's screen tests below the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. My colleague's 6Plus display is noticeably better than his previous S5. As for the new model, it looks like the higher density on the S6 has made up for it's pentile sub pixel layout, although there seems to be other problems with that screen.
Only because they couldn't get decent battery life otherwise. And don't forget the shitty screens on those big phones. Making things a different size isn't terribly innovative, most of the time. Oh, and they still have those shitty screens, remember. 
I regularly use the FW800 on my '09 17" MBP (not to mention on my MacPro at work). Once per year I break out the 400-800 adapter for the one FW400 drive I still have! But I'm looking forward to this new TB3/USB3.1 standard, hopefully cables and peripherals are somewhat more reasonable in price. Next year looks like the time to upgrade (but iMac R5k or 15" rMBP, still undecided).
Same configuration top end 15" rMBP is $50 cheaper than yesterday...
 As I posted on another thread, $400 increase overnight in Australia for a fairly maxed out iMac R5K (4GHz, 16g RAM, 4gb R9, 512gb). Damn currency.
Somewhat maxed out Retina 5K iMac (4GHz, 16g RAM, 4gb R9, 512gb) has gone up overnight by $400 here in Australia. Was $4.2k, now $4.6k. Bummer.
 I have the same machine, with a Crucial SSD and a 1TB HDD in an optibay adapter. Still great for at home, and I love the quality of the screen, not to mention the size yet I doubt we'll see a retina 17". My next Mac (next year?) may end up being a retina 5K. 
Indeed. And rather than cut into the profits of their mates in mining and media, the Abbott government will instead slug consumers with 10% GST on purchases from Netflix, Airbnb, Uber etc that were previously exempt.
