If you are relatively new to the Mac scene, maybe having jumped on board when the iPhone hit big, you might think of Apple as a hit factory. It seems like everything that comes out of Cupertino strike big, doesn't it? However, those of us who have been around for a while remember that not every gadget Apple launched lived long enough to deserve being pushed forward into the future.
We've put together a list of Apple products that we thought were cool, and wish that they could have stuck around for longer than they did. If this is the first time you've seen some of these, marvel at the wonders and boggle at the misfits! Who knows? Maybe one of these things might return in a new form someday!
I’m running a Power Mac G4 MMD (mirrored-drive doors), a 7-year-old
computer. I’m proud to say that I also squeezed all the juice out of my
previous Mac, a Power Mac 7600, and used it for just as long. That’s
what I like about Macs: even old ones are still functional.
why did ATI discontinue the Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition? Mine is less
than three years old, but it’s giving me problems. ATI won’t repair the
card because the parts it needs are no longer available, and stores
that claim to sell it still want a whopping $250 for what is supposed
to be an “old” card.
