Apples 17-inch MacBook Pro to be marked obsolete June 30

Apple logoBack in the day, 17-inch laptops were all the rage. Sure they were massive to carry around but for users who didnt mind the extra screen real estate, it was kind of a boon. However these days 17-inch laptops arent quite as common as before, save for gaming laptops, and Apple probably understood this which is why they stopped making the 17-inch MacBook Pro.

That being said, the laptop while no longer in production is still supported by Apple, but its days of support could be coming to an end. This is because in a report from AppleInsider, Apple will be adding the 17-inch MacBook Pro to its list of obsolete products come 30th of June.

Apples 17-inch MacBook Pro to be marked Obsolete June 30

For those who are wondering about Apples definition of obsolete products, it basically indicates products that were discontinued more than 7 years ago. It also means that hardware service will no longer be available for these products as well. Apple has discontinued all hardware service for obsolete products with no exceptions. Service providers cannot order parts for obsolete products.

We suppose that its time would have eventually come, so it was really a question of when, and less of if. Were not sure if Apple will ever return to the 17-inch form factor but based on the current trends, you probably shouldnt hold your breath.
