Apple and Hewlett-Packard Announce Printer Alliance

CUPERTINO, Calif., April 28 /PRNewswire -- Apple Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:
AAPL - news) and Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE: HWP - news) today announced
that they are partnering to deliver HP's state-of-the-art printers to
Macintosh(R) customers. As part of the agreement, HP will make future
ink-jet printers compatible with the Mac(R) OS. In addition, Apple will
resell a selection of HP's ink-jet printers to its education customers.

``HP is very happy to be recognized as Apple's premiere ink-jet printer
partner,'' said Antonio Perez, VP and GM of HP's Consumer Products Group.
``HP has a long history of providing world-class Macintosh-connect
products, including LaserJet and DeskJet printers, ScanJet scanners and
DesignJet large format printers that complement Apple's product offerings.
This agreement will enable HP to provide state-of-the-art printing
technologies to a broad range of Macintosh users.''

``Apple and HP are working together to ensure that Macintosh customers
continue to have the best affordable printers,'' said Steve Jobs, Interim
CEO of Apple. ``HP's commitment to provide built-in Mac OS support with
HP's industry-leading printers is a big win for Macintosh customers.''

Apple will begin reselling two HP printers to its education customers in
May. The DeskJet(TM)890CM printer with a Macintosh network bundle and HP
DeskWriter(TM) 694C printer are now available for order. For more
information, check www.apple.com or call 800-800-APPL. Later this year,
Apple plans to extend the availability of HP ink-jet printers to additional
direct channels.

Apple and HP also plan to work together to extend Apple's ColorSync(R)
software to HP ink-jet printers, so that Macintosh users can get ``the
colors you see are the colors you print'' on their HP printers.

Hewlett-Packard Company is a leading global provider of computing, Internet
and intranet solutions, services, communications products and measurement
solutions, all of which are recognized for excellence in quality and
support. It is the second-largest computer supplier in the world, with
computer-related revenue in excess of $35.4 billion in its 1997 fiscal
year. HP has 123,300 employees and had revenue of $42.9 billion in its 1997
fiscal year. Information about HP and its products can be found on the
World Wide Web at http://www.hp.com.

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. If you are considering the purchase of an Apple
product and would like to have product information faxed to you, call
800-462-4396 in the U.S. or 800-263-3394 in Canada. If you do not have a
fax machine or would like to locate an Apple authorized reseller near you,
call 800-538-9696. Customers in the U.S. now have the option of buying
products over the Internet at the Apple Store ( http://www.apple.com/ ) as
part of a distribution strategy that utilizes the Internet, along with the
Company's existing retailers and resellers to sell products. Customers
outside the U.S. should contact their local Apple representatives for
information.
