Apple Reports First Fiscal Quarter Results

CUPERTINO, California--Jan. 14, 1998--Apple Computer, Inc. today announced
financial results for its fiscal 1998 first quarter which ended Dec. 26,
1997. For the quarter, the Company generated revenues of $1.6 billion and
unit sales of 635,000. The Company recorded a quarterly net profit of $47
million, resulting in basic and diluted earnings per share of $.37 and
$.33, respectively. Apple recorded a net loss of $161 million, or $(1.26)
per share, in the September quarter, and recorded a net loss of $120
million, or $(.96) per share, in the year-ago quarter.

The Company achieved gross margins of 22 percent during the quarter,
compared to 20 percent in the September quarter and 19 percent in the
year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 50 percent of the
Company's quarterly revenues.

The profitable results were buoyed by the successful introduction of the
Company's Power Macintosh G3 computers on November 10. Over 133,000 units
of the G3 systems shipped during the quarter, rendering the G3 launch the
most successful in the Company's history. The Company also continued to
drive down operating expenses of a recurring nature to $313 million,
compared to $353 million in the September quarter and $521 million in the
year-ago quarter.

"The December quarter results reflect the benefits of the disciplined focus
that Apple has undertaken in recent months," said Apple interim CEO Steve
Jobs. "We've concentrated on providing the powerful products our customers
want at competitive prices, and we continue to streamline our business and
work with industry partners to facilitate this focus. Returning Apple to
sustainable profitability is the Company's number one objective for fiscal
1998, and we believe we're making great progress toward that goal."

"We're extremely pleased with the quality of the quarter's earnings," said
Apple CFO Fred Anderson. "Not only did we achieve a solid operating profit,
but our improving asset management resulted in positive cash flow from
operations of $143 million."

Apple Computer, Inc. ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s
with the Apple II, and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with
the Macintosh. Apple is now recommitted to its original mission - to bring
the best personal computing products and support to students, educators,
designers, scientists, engineers, businesspersons and consumers in over 140
countries around the world.

The statements in this release regarding sustainable profitability and
improving asset management are forward looking and subject to risk and
uncertainty, and future results could differ materially from our forecasts.
For a detailed discussion of factors that may affect the Company's
operating results, interested parties should review the Company's SEC
reports, including Apple's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
September 26, 1997, as well as the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December
26, 1997, to be filed with the SEC.
