APPLE ADDS 32-BIT SYSTEM ENABLER FOR SELECTED MACINTOSH MODELS

 CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) today announced the availability of the Macintosh 32- Bit System Enabler, a system software extension that provides users of existing Apple Macintosh computer systems with access to the powerful memory features of System 7.1.
 Apple customers using Macintosh II, Macintosh IIx, Macintosh IIcx and Macintosh SE/30 with System 7.1 installed can take advantage of 32- bit addressing with this system enhancement. The 32-Bit System Enabler allows users of these Macintosh computers to access up to 128MB of physical RAM. Macintosh II customers using System 7.1 can access up to 68MB of RAM when the extension is installed. Only System 7.1 users with these systems should install the enabler.
 Besides the additional RAM, customers installing the system software extension can also access virtual memory. A paged memory management unit (PMMU) is necessary to access virtual memory using a Macintosh II.
 Significance:
 The 32-Bit System Enabler enhances the functionality of previously announced Macintosh models running System 7.1 by providing unrestricted use of the system software's rich memory expansion features. Without these capabilities, users of the systems listed above do not have the internal capabilities to take advantage of 32-bit addressing.
 Availability and Distribution:
 The Macintosh 32-Bit System Enabler is available immediately. It will be licensed to customers free of charge through various on-line services, including AppleLink, America-Online, and CompuServe. The enabler will also be available through Macintosh user groups in the United States. Customers can obtain disk-based copies directly from Apple by calling 800-892-4649. (A $10 shipping and handling fee applies.) For further information, customers in the United States should call the Apple USA Customer Assistance Center at 800-776-2333. Customers outside the United States should contact their local Apple representatives for information on availability and distribution.
