All New Colors Plus iMovie 2 for Portable Video Editing

APPLE EXPO PARIS-September 13, 2000-Apple today introduced a new iBook
line featuring FireWire ports and iMovie 2, the world's most popular and
easy-to-use digital video editing software, and all new colors. The iBook
now comes in Indigo and the iBook Special Edition, which now includes a
DVD-ROM drive for watching DVD movies on the go, comes in Graphite. Both
models also come in the season's hottest new color, Key Lime, available
exclusively from Apple's Online Store (www.apple.com).

"iBook has been a big hit with consumers, students and educators, and the
addition of portable digital video editing with FireWire and iMovie 2 makes
it even better," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Anyone can now own a
portable movie studio for just $1,499."

The new iBook models include:
- a 366 MHz or 466 MHz PowerPC G3 processor;

- a CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive;
- an AV port providing audio and composite video output;
- the blazing ATI RAGE Mobility 128 controller with 8MB of SDRAM for great
games and graphics.

Like the original iBook, all new models continue to offer outstanding
features such as a brilliant 12.1-inch (diagonal) active-matrix TFT
display; "all-day" battery life of up to six hours; support for Apple's
revolutionary AirPort wireless networking solution; and instant Internet
access with a free 30-day trial with EarthLink.
