APPLESHARE 4.0 SUPPORT EXTENDED TO WIDER VARIETY OF MACINTOSH SYSTEMS AND SERVICES

 CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ --
 Description:
 Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) today announced it had extended its easy-to-use AppleShare 4.0 software to work on a wider variety of Motorola 68040-based Macintosh computers. Previously, AppleShare 4.0 supported only Apple's high-end 68040-based machines, such as the Apple Workgroup Servers 60 and 80. The new version, AppleShare 4.0.1, has been certified to run on all 68040-based Macintosh computers, except for the AV systems. It has also been tuned to operate with all of Apple's network services, including the latest version of the Apple Internet Router 3.0.1 as well as the new Apple Remote Access MultiPort Server, AppleSearch, PowerShare Collaboration Servers and PowerTalk.
 These latest enhancements mean customers will be able to run AppleShare 4.0.1 simultaneously on the same server with all of Apple's existing value-added services, allowing customers to maximize both their hardware and software investments. Additionally, enhancements have been made to AppleShare to increase its functionality with Farallon's PhoneNet PC.
 Significance:
 AppleShare 4.0 offers scalable high-performance file-and-print services for work groups of Apple Macintosh personal computers. AppleShare 4.0 is designed for small to medium size work groups and boosts server performance to two or more times that of AppleShare 3.
 Combined with existing AppleShare products -- AppleShare 3 and AppleShare Pro -- Apple provides a family of file/print service solutions to meet the needs of work groups ranging in size from two to hundreds. AppleShare Pro, which runs exclusively on the Apple Workgroup Server 95, is designed for large work groups or groups that have intensive file-and-print requirements, while AppleShare 3 is Apple's most affordable solution for building a centralized file/print server.
 AppleShare Tune-Up:
 AppleShare 4.0.1 is available in Tune-Up format only and is free to all
owners of AppleShare 4.0. The Tune-Up Installer is designed to upgrade any AppleShare 4.0 server to version 4.0.1. There is one worldwide version of the AppleShare Tune-Up 4.0.1 that updates English, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch versions of AppleShare 4.0 to version 4.0.1.
 Availability:
 The AppleShare Tune-Up 4.0.1 is available immediately at no charge to current AppleShare 4 users. The software update can be obtained by calling Apple at 800-769-2775, ext. 7851.
