Please show me these studies you speak of, although they don't really matter since we were talking about 80" screens so obviously 46" is not applicable. I love it when people use studies they think they've heard of that are not even relevant. You are correct that resolution becomes irrelevant above a certain point, but that point is much higher than the vast majority of current screens. I have showed pictures and Office applications on my MBPR and compared them to one of my other laptops and even complete laymen are blown away by the difference. Try it, you will like it... As Mikey once said on a commercial

Like I said, I have a 30" high-res screen and the difference is night and day.
rofl there is no conspiracy. No one needs ask me to comment on anything. I find this tech to be interesting. But laugh at the idea of serious professionals going "nah Im good" when offered to use a 30" monitor instead of their laptops built-in screen. If you think your retina display is great...good for you. But I doubt many would opt for it over a good 30" (you really shouldnt sit so close to the screen if you can count the individual pixels)....with the sole excpetion of some of the 'cheap' TN pannels at lower res. 25x16 produces good crisp images on 30" models when the panel is MVA or IPS. This is my opinion backed up by common sense. Same with the idea of using it for games. Apple laptops rarely have more than adequate GPU horsepower and their new ones are no exception.

You've asked for proof from anyone who has not agreed with your POV and claimed being picked on at every corner. Seriously, tone it down. Its good that you are passionate about tech, but you are at 8. HWC members would like you at a 3 or 4. Otherwise take that shite to over to [H]'s or semiaccurate's forum we really dont want or need it here.
