APPLE DEBUTS THE PORTABLE STYLEWRITER PRINTER FOR POWERBOOKS

 CUPERTINO, Calif., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) today announced the Apple Portable StyleWriter -- a lightweight portable printer small enough to fit in a briefcase and powerful enough to print laser-quality text and graphics. The Portable StyleWriter is Apple's first portable printer, designed specifically for PowerBook users.
 "Our mobile customers have been asking for the convenience of portability without sacrificing quality," said Fred Forsyth, senior vice president and general manager, Macintosh Systems Division. "The Portable StyleWriter can go anywhere a PowerBook user goes -- providing a convenient and easy-to-use solution on the road or on the desktop, at home or in the office."
 Small Size, High-Quality Output
 The 4.5-pound Portable StyleWriter offers the same laser-quality printing the industry has recognized as the standard of excellence in the StyleWriter printer. Based on thermal ink-jet technology, the 360 x 360 dot-per-inch resolution produces laser-quality output for a no-compromise portable printing solution. At 1.9 x 12.2 inches, the printer works in either horizontal or vertical orientation for maximum workspace efficiency.
 The Portable StyleWriter comes standard with 39 scalable TrueType fonts for high-quality text, matching the font set included with Apple LaserWriter printers. In addition, it can print on a variety of media -- including envelopes, labels, transparencies and letterhead.
 The Portable StyleWriter includes a rechargeable NiCad battery for use away from AC power, and an AC adapter for use with standard power outlets. Even with the battery installed, the Portable StyleWriter weighs only 4.5 pounds. When battery powered, the user can print approximately 55 pages between charges.
 Ease of Use
 The Portable StyleWriter is easy to set up and use. It's ready to use out of the box, complete with battery, power adapter/charger, ink cartridge, fonts, drivers and the printer cable. The built-in manual paper feed is among the easiest to use for a portable printer. The optional 50-page Auto Sheet Feeder turns the Portable StyleWriter into a full-featured desktop printer. And the printer uses standard StyleWriter ink cartridges, so replacement ink is readily available.
 The Portable StyleWriter makes an excellent choice as a primary or secondary printer to complement the PowerBook. It is also ideal for use in corporate loaner pools, for college students and field sales professionals.
 System Requirements, Price and Availability:
 In the United States, the Portable StyleWriter has a suggested retail price (SRP) of U.S. $439, and the Auto Sheet Feeder is offered at U.S. SRP $85. Both are available immediately in the United States through authorized Apple resellers. In Apple's Pacific region, including Canada and Latin America, the printer is currently scheduled to be available in July. In Europe, it is currently scheduled to be available in September. Pricing outside the United States may vary by country.
 The Portable StyleWriter works with any PowerBook, PowerBook Duo or Macintosh computer with system software version 7.0.1 or later. Apple recommends a minimum 4MB of RAM or more with System 7.
