Apple is expected to add few 2009 and 2011 MacBook models to vintage and obsolete list on December 31, 2016. The obsolete list will have the Mac Mini released in 2009, Mac mini Server (2010), Mac Pro (early 2009), Xserve (2009), Xserve G5 (2009) and the 13-inch MacBook models. However, the vintage category list will have 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros manufactured in early 2011.
