Apple Debuts New Power Mac G4 Line
Revolutionary SuperDrive Now Available for $1,000 Less

MACWORLD EXPO, NEW YORK-July 18, 2001-Offering the ultimate in performance,
expansion and digital media solutions, Apple today introduced a powerful
new line of Power Mac G4s with 733 MHz, 867 MHz and dual 800 MHz PowerPC
G4 processors. Apple's revolutionary SuperDrive, a combination CD-RW/DVD-R
drive that can burn DVDs which can be played in consumer DVD players, is
now standard in Power Mac models costing $2,499-$1,000 less than before.

""""""""These are the fastest Macs ever, with 867 MHz and dual 800 MHz PowerPC G4
processors,"""""""" said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. """"""""With the 867 MHz processor and
our revolutionary SuperDrive together in a system costing just $2,499, more
users can now afford to create professional quality DVDs.""""""""

The new Power Mac G4 line offers incredible performance with systems
featuring 867 MHz and dual 800 MHz PowerPC G4 processors with Velocity
Engine. For the ultimate in processor utilization, both the 867 MHz and
dual 800 MHz processors include 256K of on-chip level 2 cache running at
processor speed and a large 2MB of level 3 backside cache per processor.
For advanced graphics, NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics cards are now standard
on all models, with the new NVIDIA GeForce2 MX with TwinView card for dual
monitor support standard in the dual 800 MHz model. The dual 800 MHz Power
Mac G4 runs professional applications like Adobe's Photoshop up to 83
percent faster than a 1.7 GHz Pentium IV-based PC*.

The revolutionary SuperDrive, a combination CD-RW/DVD-R drive, together
with Apple's pre-installed iDVD or optional DVD Studio Pro software, can
create professional-looking DVDs that can be played in consumer DVD
players. The SuperDrive is now standard in Power Mac G4 models starting at
just $2,499. The SuperDrive writes DVD-R at 2x, reads DVD at 4x, writes
CD-R at 8x, writes CD-RW at 4x and reads CD at 24x.

Housed in a updated """"""""quicksilver"""""""" enclosure, the Power Mac G4 line includes:

* an award-winning design with a side door that swings open to provide the
industry's easiest access to expansion slots and memory;
* five slots, including four high-performance 64 bit 33 MHz PCI slots and
an 4x AGP slot with NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics card with TwinView and 64MB
of SDRAM for dual display support in the dual 800 MHz model, or NVIDIA
GeForce2 MX graphics card with 32MB of SDRAM in both the 733 MHz, and 867
MHz models;

* Mac OS X pre-installed providing protected memory, preemptive
multitasking, advanced memory management, symmetric multiprocessing and a
highly-optimized BSD networking architecture;
* Apple's innovative iTunes """"""""jukebox"""""""" software that lets users easily
manage their own digital music collections and burn their own standard
audio CDs, Disc Burner software to easily create data CDs, and iMovie 2,
the world's most popular, easy-to-use digital video editing software;
* 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet built-in on the motherboard for transferring
large files, such as image and digital video files; and
