APPLE COMPUTER OFFERS FREE BATTERY CASE

 APPLE COMPUTER OFFERS FREE BATTERY CASE
 CUPERTINO, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Computer Inc.


(NASDAQ: AAPL) today announced that it is offering free protective cases for the replaceable battery packs used in the Macintosh PowerBook 100, 140, and 170 notebook computers. When the battery pack is out of the computer, its electric contact terminals can be inadvertently shorted by metal objects such as keys and paper clips. This shorting could lead to fires or burns. The free protective case announced today electrically insulates the contacts, thus eliminating the possibility of shorting.
 To receive a protective case or to ask for more information, customers in the United States should call 800-377-4127. Customers outside of the United States should contact their local service providers. After May 1992, all Apple PowerBook rechargeable batteries will be sold with the case included.
 Apple is working closely with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission and is cooperating with the Commission staff to investigate potential safety risks.
