Apple Next Month Plans to Drop Certain G4 and Xserve Support

MacMerc.com picked up some information from a support bulletin that Apple uses to communicate with Authorized Service Providers, that explains which of Apple’s products will be marked either “vintage” or “obsolete” next month.

Come March 17th, Apple will officially label the items listed below as either “vintage” or “obsolete” in Asia-Pacific, Canada, Europe, Japan, Latin America, the United States and all Apple retail locations. What this means is that Apple will no longer provide documentation for these products, and service parts will not be made available.

Obsolete Products:

• PowerBook G4
• Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio)
• Power Mac G4 (Quicksilver)
• Macintosh Server G4 (Digital Audio)
• Macintosh Server G4 (Quicksilver)

Vintage Products:

• Xserve RAID
• Xserve (Slot Load)
• Xserve (Cluster Node)

In addition, once the date hits, these products cannot be sent in for Mail-Repair to AppleCare Repair Centers. AppleInsider notes that owners of these products may continue to obtain service and parts from Apple Service Providers in the state of California, as required by the state. A complete list of “vintage and obsolete products” can be found on Apple’s website here.
