Apple has updated its list of Mac and other products it considers vintage and/or obsolete. The company will cease providing any product support or spare parts for these models from next month.

The list pretty much underlines that the PowerPC Mac is extinct, leaving few PowerPC models in the frame. Apple includes products discontinued over five but less than seven years ago as ‘Vintage’. Thanks to Hardmac for the info.

The following Macs and other products, may they rest in peace (or get cannibalised for spare parts via eBay)

  •         iBook G4 (early 2004)
