"Apple has updated its list of Mac and other products it considers vintage and/or obsolete. The company will cease providing any product support or spare parts for these models from next month."

I guess it's pretty appropo that we are talking about old Macs going to the graveyard this close to Halloween, and with this updated list the PowerPC is pretty much gone. Any product that was discontinued more than five but less than seven years is considered vintage, while any product discontinued over seven years is considered obsolete. Apple has a list on their site as well. Interesting to note that they can consider products vintage and not provide support, except if it was purchased in California and it falls under a certain statute. No other state has that qualifier.
