Apple Unveils iBook Consumer Portable with Wireless Internet Access
at Macworld Expo

QuickTime TV Debuts with One-Click Access to Highest-Quality Content
on Internet

MACWORLD EXPO, NEW YORK-July 21, 1999-During the kick-off keynote
today, Apple introduced iBook, the first consumer portable to provide
untethered Internet access for home and schools via AirPort, Apple's
revolutionary new wireless local area network (LAN) solution. The
Company also unveiled QuickTime TV (QTV), the Internet's
highest-quality network for web-based video and audio, seamlessly
integrating four key elements: Apple's award-winning QuickTime 4
Player software; Apple's open-source QuickTime Streaming Server
software; the Apple/Akamai Technologies streamed content delivery
service; and compelling content from leading providers.

Building upon its success in the consumer and education markets with
the popular iMac, Apple's iBook, the "iMac to Go" features "all day"
battery life of up to 6 hours, a PowerPC G3 processor that
outperforms the fastest Intel processor found in any notebook PC*,
and Apple's revolutionary AirPort wireless networking for cable-free
Internet access (optional), all in a stunning notebook design
available in two eye-catching colors-Blueberry and Tangerine.
Additional iBook features include a 12.1" TFT display for super crisp
images and video, built-in 56K modem and 10/100BASE-T Ethernet
networking, built-in CD-ROM drive, and two built-in antennas and an
internal slot to accept Apple's new Airport wireless networking card.
iBook's design innovations include a rubber-coated translucent
enclosure for durability, a pullout handle for safe carrying, and a
unique closing mechanism without latches for faster and easier access.

QTV, the Internet's highest performance network for web-based video
and audio, seamlessly integrates Apple's QuickTime Streaming Server
with Akamai Technologies' global Internet content delivery service to
give Macintosh and Windows users one-click access to high-quality,
popular content, free of charge to viewers at www.apple.com. QTV
provides leading content providers with the fastest, most reliable
distribution network available. New "intercasters" on the QTV network
include ABC News, Disney, ESPN, The Knitting Factory,
RollingStone.com, VH1 and Virgin Radio.

Demonstrating continued enthusiasm for the Macintosh platform, Apple
today also announced that third-party developers have introduced
nearly 5,000 new Macintosh software and hardware products in the past
12 months. In one year, third-party software developers have
announced 3,935 new software titles for the Macintosh platform.
Hardware manufacturers-fueled in part by iMac's support for the
Universal Serial Bus (USB) and the Power Macintosh G3 computer's
support for USB and Firewire-have developed more than 1,053 new
products, ranging from storage devices, printers, scanners and
cameras to game controllers. Forty new FireWire devices and 37
Universal Serial Bus (USB) peripherals will make their debut this
week at Macworld. The new hardware and software products announced
today bring the total number of products shipping on the Mac platform
to 13,100. A complete list of products is available in the Macintosh
Products Guide at www.apple.com/guide.

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.
