APPLE EXTENDS UPGRADE PROGRAM FOR THE APPLE INTERNET ROUTER

 CUPERTINO, Calif., June 15 /PRNewswire/ --
 Description:
 Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) is offering a two-month extension for software upgrades from the AppleTalk Internet Router 2.0 to the new Apple Internet Router Basic Connectivity Package, which is part of Apple's new family of internetworking router software products. The previous upgrade offer, which was scheduled to end June 12, 1993, will be extended until August 12, 1993.
 Apple's newest router family enables organizations to increase the size, performance and manageability of their AppleTalk networks and replaces Apple's previous router -- the AppleTalk Internet Router 2.0. In addition to the Apple Internet Router Basic Connectivity Package, Apple also offers two extension packages -- the AppleTalk/IP Wide Area Extension and the AppleTalk/X.25 Wide Area Extension -- which provide wide area AppleTalk routing over TCP/IP and X.25 networks, respectively. The extension kits are sold separately.
 The Apple Internet Router product family provides wide-area networking (WAN) connectivity by implementing a new technology -- called the AppleTalk Update-based Routing Protocol (AURP) -- which significantly reduces network traffic. The router is designed to be easy to set up and configure. It includes many advanced features, such as network number remapping, which allows users to connect independently administered networks without concern for network numbering conflicts. Additional features include security options to protect networks from unauthorized use and built-in data compression for increased throughput. Also, built-in Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support enables the router to be monitored from any SNMP-based network management console.
 Upgrade Program:
 Through Aug. 12, 1993, upgrades from the AppleTalk Internet Router 2.0 to the new Apple Internet Router Basic Connectivity Package will be available. For customers with 2.0 router versions purchased before Nov. 1, 1992, upgrade packages will be available for $149, plus local sales tax. For 2.0 routers purchased after Nov. 1, 1992, the cost is $49, plus local sales tax. Proof of purchase will be required. Additional upgrade information can be obtained by calling the Apple Customer Assistance Center at 800-776-2333.
