As much as you may love the mid-2010 17-inch MacBook Pro, Apple just added it to its vintage and obsolete products list.
The notebook joins the mid-2010 15-inch MacBook Pro and the early 2009 Xserve and are now generally no longer eligible for hardware service. Apple defines vintage products as those that have not been manufactured for more than five but less than seven years ago, while obsolete products are those that were discontinued more than seven years ago.
The new additions come less than three months after Apple obsoleted select early 2008 to late 2009 Macs, including the iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009), iMac (27-inch, Late 2009), MacBook Air (Mid 2009), Mac Pro (Early 2009), MacBook (13-inch, Early 2008), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008), and MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2008).
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
