Research in Peace?
Are you running 64 bit kernel? On my macs 64 bit kernel is using anywhere from 450 to 1.5 GB. On 17'' MBP it's 450 MB on iMac 762 MB and on Mac Pro 1.5 GB right after boot.
If you consistently concentrate on areas where you can do better than industry leaders, slowly you will find yourself doing less and less over time, until your business model becomes unsustainable (it can't support the R&D needed to be good at anything).   Apple is already far behind their former self, where I could buy hardware/software/update from them and be sure it will work. These days that is no longer true.

The new retina macbook pro has higher resolution but less screen real estate than 17'' MBP. Really, it has the same screen real estate as old 15'' MBP (2880x1800 pixels is exactly 4 times 1440x900) so 4 times as many pixels are used to render same size UI elements as on the old 15'' MBP. You are not going to see more of text in a web page or text editor on the new screen.
The ridiculously heavy and thick aluminum is what helps keep it quiet.  Its not hard to make a light case, but light non rattly case is hard to make. Besides it's not like you will be carrying your desktop case around the house daily.   To me Mac Pro is timeless design and just as beautiful as the first time I saw it.   But all this is beside the point.  Apple is all about mobile now and making profit above all. Caring days and principles are gone.
Completely pointless. Current 17'' already has retina screen for all intents and purposes. At normal viewing distance when it sits on your lap (I'm typing on one right now) you can't see individual pixels and everything is incredibly sharp already. Old gen 15'' really did have blocky text and needed a high res screen. Discontinuation of 17'' and anemic Mac Pro update are clear signals where Apple is going. Pure consumer mobile market. Pros should start migrating away...
  Exactly, that's why it's a huge compromise between looking at tiny text or looking at big fuzzy text :D.
I think we are both in agreement here and saying the same thing. In short the original post that claimed having 15'' screen with higher resolution will allow you to see more on screen than 17'' screen is wrong if proper resolution independent rendering is in place in the OS.   Even in Windows today you can change your screen DPI in the display properties to make things less tiny on high res screen. Of course this doesn't work for every app, because of absolute layouts and...
