APPLE UPGRADES HARD DISK DRIVE ON MACINTOSH QUADRA AND MACINTOSH IIci MODELS

 APPLE UPGRADES HARD DISK DRIVE ON MACINTOSH QUADRA
 AND MACINTOSH IIci MODELS
 CUPERTINO, Calif., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Description: To meet the increasing storage needs of high-end users, Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) will begin equipping configurations of the Apple Macintosh Quadra line and Macintosh IIci with a new 230MB drive, instead of the existing 160MB hard disk drive. Significance
 In addition to adding 44 percent more disk capacity, the new disk drive operates twice as fast as the 160MB version. Hard disk drive Input and Output (I/O) helps improve the overall performance of the Macintosh.
 The new hard disk is equipped with the same high-speed SCSI chip found on all Macintosh Quadra computers, allowing Quadra computers to take full advantage of the higher throughput offered by the 230MB drive. Apple expects overall operation of the Macintosh Quadra line to be 10 percent to 15 percent faster. The Macintosh IIci will operate between 5 percent and 10 percent faster with the 230MB disk drive. Some operations, such as duplicating a file in the Finder, will be twice as fast as with the 160MB drive. Availability and Pricing
 Although the new drives offer improved performance and more storage, they will be offered at no increase in suggested retail price. Five Macintosh models equipped with the larger capacity 230MB drives will begin shipping in the United States today. These include:
 Model U.S. SRP
 Macintosh IIci 5MB/230MB $4,599
 Macintosh IIci, A/UX, 8MB/230MB 5,533
 Macintosh Quadra 700 4MB/230MB 6,499
 Macintosh Quadra 700, A/UX, 8MB/230MB 8,008
 Macintosh Quadra 950 8MB/230MB 8,499
 New configurations of the Macintosh IIci and Macintosh Quadra computers are available immediately in the United States through Apple authorized resellers. (Availability may vary outside the United States).
