The last Apple laptop with a CD and DVD drive is officially obsolete

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Leila Fadel. Some tough news for our co-host A Martínez. The last Apple laptop with a CD and DVD drive, also known as the mid-2012 13-inch MacBook Pro, is now officially obsolete. That doesn't mean the device won't work. It just means that Apple won't service its hardware anymore. The tech giant considers a product obsolete once it's been distributed for sale for more than seven years. I guess A can load his "Real Housewives" DVDs onto something else. It's MORNING EDITION.
