FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Products and Silicon Alley Attendees at MACWORLD Expo Demonstrate
Mac-Market's High Energy and Innovation

Attendees invigorated by Steve Jobs' In-person Keynote, iMac showcase and
Apple's Announcement of Third Consecutive Quarterly Profits

NEW YORK, July 17, 1998 -- Over 34,000 consumers, educators, creative
professionals, and sales and support staff jammed New York's Jacob K.
Javits Center for IDG's MACWORLD Expo '98 last week. Attendees to this
year's East Coast show tested an array of innovative, new Mac-based
products, heard from the best-known names in educational technology and
digital artistry, and participated in the first-ever gaming contest.

"You could feel the enthusiasm in the air at this year's MACWORLD Expo --
New York," said Rob Scheschareg, MACWORLD Expo's Show Director. "As a
result of the sheer number of new products, an impressive keynote and the
Macworld/Pro technical conference, our exhibitors, attendees and business
partners told us firsthand that the show was a success."

Throughout the three-day show, held July 8-10 at the Jacob K. Javits
Center, a number of welcomed announcements were made. Attendees clearly
rallied around Apple Computer, Inc. when interim CEO Steve Jobs announced
during the keynote -- in person rather than via satellite -- that the
computer maker expected to post net profits for the third straight quarter.
This week, Apple announced that the last quarter was its best in three
years, with reported net income of $101 million. For the last two quarters,
revenues have stabilizing at about $1.4 billion. Keynote Highlights Jobs
joined by Phil Schiller, Apple's Vice President of worldwide product
marketing also announced that Apple's new $1,299 iMac personal computer
would hit the stores August 15 installed with 56K modems rather than 36.6K
ones, as originally planned. Jobs also told the enthralled MACWORLD Expo
audience that 177 new Macintosh programs had been announced in the 63 days
leading up to the conference a clear indication of market support. He
bolstered the good news from Apple with a live demonstration of the iMac
computer, Apple's latest entrant into the competitive personal computer
realm.

Significant announcements from Microsoft and Disney OnLine executives
further reinforced Job's positive predictions for Apple's future.

"Apple's announcements about its continued profitability and the impressive
iMac demo helped excite exhibitors and attendees alike at the show," said
Scheschareg.

Consumer Appeal: The iMac & Content @ Home Apple Computer featured its new
iMac and its complete line of PowerBook G3 and Power Macintosh G3
computers, as well as QuickTime 3 and WebObjects software products.

Gaming developers, major entertainment companies, broadcasters, personal
finance and productivity application developers and hardware manufacturers
provided consumers hands-on experience with their latest products in a new
"Content @ Home" pavilion.

Additionally, the competitive types participated in the first-ever National
Macintosh Gaming Championship, which highlighted the latest games for the
Macintosh platform.

Education Appeal: The Education District Building on its education
community support, Apple Computer sponsored the Education District
pavilion, which featured software and Internet tools, curriculum building
solutions and multimedia for schools, training and home learning.

"The Education District pavilion affirmed Apple's commitment to the
education community," Scheschareg said. "Educators were genuinely impressed
with the array of new educational tools that have been created for
teachers, students and curriculum development specialists."

Professional Appeal: The Macworld/Pro Conference Professionals attending
this year's MACWORLD Expo -- the Creative World participated in the highly
regarded Macworld/Pro conference, MACWORLD Users conference and day-long
pre-conference workshops.

upcoming computer and peripherals, and software purchases. Seventy-eight
