Sure, with their measly 350 or 400MHz PowerPC processors, these machines haven’t been “cool” since the Y2K bug was still a lingering threat. But Apple has continued to offer service parts and documentation to authorized repair facilities all these years.
All that changes on September 18. On that date, Apple metaphorically pulls the plug on these machines, straps them to a steno chair with a pack of C4 explosives and shoves them down an open elevator shaft just like Bruce Willis did with that PC monitor in Die Hard. It’s over…finally… but they’re not alone… others will be officially pronounced “obsolete” on that date as well.
Here’s the list:
- iMac 350 MHz
- iMac 400 MHz DV
- iMac 400 MHz DV (Special Edition)
- Apple Cinema Display (1999-2000)
- Apple Studio Display 15-inch DVI
- Apple Studio Display 21
- Airport Base Station (Graphite)
