Vintage and obsolete products (La lista dei Mac e dispositivi Apple obsoleti)

E’ un triste giorno per molti affezionati utenti, ma prima o poi tocca a tutti. Apple ha infatti aggiornato la lista dei Mac e dispositivi che diverranno ufficialmente obsoleti il prossimo 13 marzo. Niente più assistenza, dunque, né supporto né parti di ricambio.

Oltre ai computer, nell’implacabile novero questa volta ci finiscono anche prodotti professionali, iPod e monitor:

  • Xserve G5
  • Xserve G5 (gennaio 2005)
  • Cinema Display (20 pollici DVI, fine 2005)
  • Cinema Display (23 pollici DVI, fine 2005)
  • PowerBook G4 (15 pollici, 1,5/1,33 GHz)
  • PowerBook G4 (17 pollici, 1,5 GHz)
  • iPod photo (originale)

Forza e coraggio, dopotutto in passato ci sono state epurazioni ben più corpose, e poi checché ne dicano a Cupertino ancora oggi molti utenti continuano ad usare il fido PowerBook senza problemi di sorta. Chi volesse curiosare un po’ troverà interessante la lista ufficiale di tutti i prodotti vintage e obsoleti di Apple a questa pagina.
