APPLE PRINTER DRIVER UPDATE AVAILABLE FOR STYLEWRITER, PERSONAL LASERWRITER LS PRINTERS

 CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Imaging Products Division of Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) today released a new printer driver kit for the Apple StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS printers containing 39 TrueType fonts and the GrayShare printer driver which allows grayscale printing and printer sharing. The StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS Printer Driver Update provides capabilities for these printers that were previously only available in Apple's PostScript-based laser printers and its newest GrayShare-based printers.
 Grayscale printing:
 Printing halftone images is now available for Macintosh 68020 and above systems without the expense of purchasing an additional or more expensive laser printer. Apple's GrayShare printer driver enhances printing by providing up to 100 levels of gray for sharper image quality. Users simply select the grayscale option in the print dialogue box.
 Printer sharing:
 Apple StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS printers can now be shared with other systems on LocalTalk and EtherTalk. GrayShare allows the printer to be used by only one Macintosh or shared with others on the network. It additionally manages background printing in a more efficient manner than previously available. Network users simply select the printer through their Chooser function. The Macintosh directly connected to the printer can display print status and delete print jobs in process.
 TrueType fonts:
 The StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS Printer Driver Update is packaged with 39 scalable TrueType fonts which allow a wide choice of font styles and sizes. TrueType fonts are designed to provide maximum compatibility with Macintosh computers and Apple's StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS printers.
 Significance:
 Apple's StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS printer customers have asked for an economical way to update their printers while maintaining their current printer investment. The StyleWriter and Personal LaserWriter LS Printer Driver Update gives these customers two commonly requested features, grayscale printing and networking, previously available only on more costly machines. In addition, users of the Update will have access to 39 TrueType fonts.
