 APPLE ENHANCES PERSONAL LASERWRITER LS
 CUPERTINO, Calif., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Computer Inc.


(NASDAQ: AAPL) today announced the following: Description
 The Personal LaserWriter LS, Apple's most affordable laser printer for the Apple Macintosh personal computer, will now ship with new printer software that improves the performance of the printer by up to two times the original LS printer. This speed enhancement, along with the capability to print in the background, maximizes user productivity. In addition to double the performance, the new Personal LaserWriter LS also provides approximately 40 percent more paper capacity (70-sheet capacity instead of 50-sheet capacity). For customers with more demanding paper usage, an optional 250-sheet paper tray is available as before.
 The software upgrade for the Personal LaserWriter LS includes 22 new fonts (from seven font families) and improved installation software. The new fonts are: ITC Avant Garde, ITC Bookman, New Century Schoolbook, Helvetica Narrow, Palatino, ITC Zapf Chancery, and ITC Zapf Dingbats. The new fonts are TrueType versions of the original LaserWriter Plus fonts. Having TrueType versions of these fonts ensures that users will get smooth text at any size. These join the current set of TrueType fonts which includes Times, Courier, Helvetica, Symbol, Chicago, Geneva, Monaco, and New York. The fonts are automatically installed in the user's system during the normal printer installation procedure.
 Apple has also improved the installation of fonts, driver and printer software with a new, easy-to-use installer. This new installer enables printer users to install or remove fonts, and add new printer software just by clicking a single button. Significance
 Taken together, these enhancements give Macintosh users more performance and flexibility in the same compact, easy to use printer design for less. The improvements are fully compatible with System 7, and virtually all software applications. Existing owners of the Personal LaserWriter LS can upgrade to all of these features, except the expanded paper tray simply by obtaining the new Personal LaserWriter LS Installation Disk Set. Pricing, Availability and Distribution
 Enhanced models of the Personal LaserWriter LS are now available through authorized Apple resellers in specific markets. The U.S. suggested price has been reduced to $1,199. Pricing, availability, and distribution may vary outside the United States. Upgrade Procedure
 Existing Personal LaserWriter LS owners can obtain the new printer driver and additional fonts through authorized Apple resellers in the United States. The software can also be purchased by calling Apple's toll free software upgrade number, 1-800-947-5176. Mail-in upgrade coupons will also be available at resellers in the United States. Upgrade procedures may vary outside the United States.
