The Last Plastic 2010 MacBook Added to Apple’s Obsolete List

The Last Plastic 2010 MacBook Added to Apple’s Obsolete List

Apple on Monday added the 13-inch plastic shelled 2010 MacBook to its official list of vintage and obsolete products. Several 2009 MacBook Pro models were also added to the list.

MacRumors:

Apple first introduced the unibody polycarbonate MacBook, the third design iteration of the MacBook line, in late 2009, offering it in black and white. The MacBook was sold for only a short time, having been discontinued in mid-2011 after the introduction of the MacBook Air.

As defined by Apple, vintage products are those that have not been manufactured for more than 5 years and less than 7 years ago, while obsolete products are those that are discontinued more than 7 years ago.

The MacBook and MacBook Pro models added to the list on Monday are considered “vintage” in the U.S. and Turkey, and “obsolete’ in the rest of the world. The models added to the list yesterday include:

  • MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009)
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009)
