    Hello. I read from the following website that Apple will discontinue the following products:

    AirPort Express Base Station
    iMac (20-inch, Mid 2007)
    iMac (24-inch, Mid 2007)
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.4/2.2GHz)
    MacBook Pro (17-inch, 2.4GHz)
    XServe (Late 2006)
    XServe RAID (SFP, Late 2004)
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 3G (China)
    iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 3GS (China)

    Link is provided below:

    Among them is the MacBook Pro 15-inch, 2.4/2.2GHz model....which I just bought April of this year :(. Even though this computer was made last year (I think it was a mid 2014 model), does this mean they will not support it anymore...despite I purchase AppleCare :(? Sorry for the question but I'm a noobie to Apple products, and not familiar to their lifecycle. Thank you!

    Your MacBook is not the model that they are moving to "obsolete": the one they are talking about in the article is the 2007 15" and 17" SantaRosa model ID MacBookPro3,1

    The article is not specific, and you aren't used to Apple's convention of applying model names and then not having a clearly identifiable difference between years and versions.

    With Apple, the first generation of a product doesn't have a year attached. The rest do. So, the models might be:

    MacBook Pro
    MacBook Pro (2006)
    MacBook Pro (Early 2007)
    MacBook Pro (Late 2008)... etc.

    As a general rule of thumb Apple supports most models for 6 years (a little more in California where it's legally required).

    The MacBook Pro model they're talking about came out back in 2007, not 2014, so you're fine :)
