FAMILIES EARN AND LEARN WITH APPLE'S NEW PROMOTION

 CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Apple USA division of Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AAPL) today announced a special promotion, designed to provide greater value to Apple Macintosh Performa computer customers during the tax season. Through March 21, Apple is offering tax and education software at no additional charge with the purchase of a Macintosh Performa home computer.
 In addition to the suite of basic productivity software that is included with every Macintosh Performa, during the promotion, buyers may also obtain bonus software -- ChipSoft's MacInTax software and Broderbund's popular family fun and learning program, "Where in Time Is Carmen San Diego?"
 The promotion is tailored for families who would benefit from a computer with a financial solution and a fun learning program for their school-aged children.
 "We understand that families have a variety of reasons to purchase a home computer," said Keith Fox, vice president and general manager of the Apple USA Consumer Group. "The software included in the promotion addresses the needs of parents with financial concerns during the tax season, as well as children who will enjoy learning at home with Performa."
 The MacInTax software included with the promotion provides users with the most current tax forms, updated rules and regulations, a financial checklist, tax saving ideas and "audit flags" throughout the program to alert the taxpayer to items the IRS might question.
 Broderbund's "Where in Time Is Carmen San Diego?" invites children to solve what could be the greatest crimes of all time, and learn history in the process. Families can learn geography and history while playing this challenging and fun game.
 Consumers can obtain the bonus software by mailing in a coupon provided by participating Performa retailers. Performa systems are available at more than 2,000 consumer electronics, office supply and department stores throughout the United States. Stores offering the promotion are Biz Mart, Circuit City, Dayton Hudson, Incredible Universe, Lechmere, Montgomery Wards, Office Depot, Office Max, Sears, Silo, Staples and TOPs.
 Performa models currently available are the Performa 200, the Performa 400, the Performa 600 and the Performa 600 CD, which comes with an internal CD-ROM drive.
