Are PowerBooks and original MacBooks (Air too) considered vintage now?


Different people will have different definitions of “vintage”. For me, it’s
vintage if it can’t comfortably run current (or near-current) versions of
essential software, which I think applies to PowerBooks and original
MacBooks. Those machines can certainly still serve as useful daily
computers, though, as long as era-specific software is used and certain
compromises are accepted.

nope. apple makes and supports the products, so they get to decide when
it's vintage or obsolete. nobody else.

same for any other product manufacturer.

Oh, I see. You're making your own definitions for words up as you
go along. "Obsolete", sure. But "vintage"? Nope.

*plonk*

(In fact, I'm not sure why you aren't in the "ostentatiously
anonymous twats" section of my killfile already.)

i'm not the one making up definitions. that would be *you*.

apple is the *only* entity who decides whether *their* products are
currently supported, vintage or obsolete. nobody else.

the same applies to every other manufacturer for their own product
lines.

simple concept, really.
