Apple announces it still makes Xserves
Apple today announced that not only do they still make Xserves, but they actually updated them. According to Apple, the new Xseres “deliver up to twice the performance of the previous system,” and feature Intel’s new “Nehalem” Xeon processors and a next generation system architecture, giving the ew Xserves up to an 89 percent improvement in performance per watt over the previous model, which they were still apparently selling.
Above: Introducing the… all-new… Xserve? When on your big launch day you get squeezed out of even the little bottom pics by “American Idol on iTunes”, you know you are the red-headed step child of the product line.
I was pretty sure Apple had discontinued the Xserve around the time they discontinued the Apple TV, but a friend of mine says that Apple never actually discontinued the Apple TV, they just forgot to mention it for a couple years. Both models are expected to receive a future update sometime in late 2013.
