Default Five Illumina instruments now obsolete?

In all the hoopla about Illumina’s announcements, this might have been missed: they just discontinued five sequencing instruments. Did yours just become obsolete?

Surely it's no surprise. Our GAIIx has been obsolete for a long time... long prior to the announcement of new sequencers. I would have thought that anyone owning a GA-series instrument would know that it's not worth running unless you have a specific application that can't be done on another sequencer, or unless you were getting much better pricing from Illumina than we were!

... anyone want to buy a GAIIx? Perfect working order with all accessories included :-)

Yes, you're absolutely correct. It's been effectively obsolete (and only minimally supported) for quite some time. The HiSeq 1000, 1500 and 2000 being discontinued is perhaps a bit more surprising, but their lineup was looking a bit crowded. The slimmed down choices seems to make more sense.
