.....late 2012 iMacs.....


Apple Adding Late 2012 iMacs to Vintage and Obsolete Products Pilot Program at End of January

....In an internal memo distributed to Apple Authorized Service Providers, obtained by MacRumors, Apple has indicated that Late 2012 model 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs will be added to its vintage and obsolete products list on January 30.

Vintage and obsolete products are typically no longer eligible for repairs or replacement parts from Apple or Apple Authorized Service Providers, but the memo states Late 2012 model iMacs will be eligible for Apple's pilot program that will permit extended service through January 30, 2021 worldwide, subject to parts availability.

Other products in the pilot program include the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, Mid 2012 models of the MacBook Air and Mac Pro, and Mid 2012 to Early 2013 models of the MacBook Pro. The program began in January 2018 and was expanded in August.

Vintage products are those that have not been manufactured for more than five years, according to Apple.

This is the line that needs your attention --

Other products in the pilot program include the .... Mid 2012 to Early 2013 models of the MacBook Pro.

Considering the mid-2012 MBP was only discontinued in late 2016, it just went out of Applecare warranty a few months ago (and some refurbs may still be under warranty).

The mid-2012 15" MacBook Pro is still the one to get--assuming you don't want to spend a ton of money.

USB3, no graphics card/motherboard failures, a quad-core i7 and easily user replaceable RAM and hard drive.
