APPLE SHIPS MACINTOSH PC EXCHANGE AND QUICKTIME STARTER KIT; NEW MACINTOSH SYSTEM 7 SOFTWARE EXTENSIONS SLATED FOR BROAD AVAILABILITY
 CUPERTINO, Calif., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) today announced immediate availability of its first retail software products that augment the core System 7 operating- system services of the Apple Macintosh computer -- Macintosh PC Exchange and the QuickTime Starter Kit. Macintosh PC Exchange allows customers to easily move files between a Macintosh and any PC- compatible computer. The QuickTime Starter Kit contains a set of utilities and a wealth of clip content material that allows customers to get started using QuickTime, the highly acclaimed extension to Macintosh System 7 that facilitates work with sound, video and animation.
 In addition to worldwide availability through Apple authorized resellers, both products are part of a new U.S. distribution agreement with Ingram Micro to make Apple software products available through a wide variety of software resellers. Apple expects to expand distribution even further for software products, both in the United States and worldwide.
 "The wide availability of software products such as Macintosh PC Exchange and the QuickTime Starter Kit is just the beginning of Apple offering customers a convenient opportunity to buy software extensions that meet specific needs," said Charlie Oppenheimer, director of marketing for the Macintosh Software Architecture Division. "Customers can expect easy access to a steady stream of system- software products that add even more value to their Macintosh computers." Macintosh PC Exchange
 Macintosh PC Exchange enables Macintosh computers running System 7 and equipped with an Apple SuperDrive floppy disk drive to easily read, write and format PC-compatible disks. Files on the PC- compatible disk appear on the Macintosh screen as standard Macintosh documents, and can be opened, saved, renamed, moved, copied or deleted just as with any Macintosh document. These fish applications and many leading DOS and Windows applications.
 The suggested retail price in the United States of Macintosh PC Exchange is U.S. $79. QuickTime Starter Kit
 The QuickTime Starter Kit provides the fastest way to get started using sound, video, animation, and compressed still images on a Macintosh. When used with products that support QuickTime, customers can cut, copy and paste QuickTime movies into documents and presentations as easily as they already work with text and graphics. The product includes four easy-to-use utilities that allow users to play movies (MoviePlayer), compress still images to a fraction of their original size (Picture Compressor), convert existing content into movies (Movie Converter), and, with a video digitizer card, capture video movies (Movie Recorder). The QuickTime Starter Kit also includes QuickClips -- a CD-ROM containing over 400 MB of clip video, animation, and high-quality still images, all indexed for easy browsing; and an electronic QuickTime product catalog listing over 100 shipping products that are QuickTime savvy.
 The suggested retail price in the United States for the QuickTime Starter Kit is U.S. $169. Direct Product Support
 In the United States, Macintosh PC Exchange and the QuickTime Starter Kit will include toll-free phone support directly through Apple for one year.
