Apple Ships 5 Millionth iMac

Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Apple Computer Inc.

    CUPERTINO, Calif., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple(R) (Nasdaq:   AAPL) today
 announced that it has shipped its five millionth iMac(TM) computer. The iMac's
 winning combination of performance, simplicity and affordability has made it
 one of the most popular computers in homes, schools and business. The iMac's
 award-winning design has set design trends around the world, inspiring
 products far outside the computer industry.
     "Simply put, the iMac has redefined the consumer and education computer,
 ushering in several industry firsts including USB, FireWire, desktop movies,
 wireless networking, quiet fan-less operation and world-class design," said
 Apple CEO Steve Jobs. "I look forward to shipping our ten millionth
 iMac in a few years."
     iMac offers a great all-in-one design that is fun and easy to use. Packed
 with innovation, iMac was the first desktop to give customers their choice of
 translucent colors and stunning patterns with which to personalize their home
 or workspace. iMac was one of the first computers to include USB and
 FireWire(R) ports for easy and fast connections to a wide range of
 peripherals, and built-in support for wireless networking. iMac was also the
 first consumer desktop to provide revolutionary fan-less operation, resulting
 in a significant reduction of ambient noise.
     Delivering exciting solutions to customers in the home and classroom, the
 iMac's easy set up enables even novice users to get on the Internet within
 10 minutes of first lifting it out of the box. Evolved to enhance today's
 digital lifestyle, Apple's latest line of iMacs offer CD-RW drives and
 revolutionary applications such as iTunes, Apple's amazing "jukebox" software;
 and iMovie(TM) 2, the world's most popular, easy-to-use consumer digital video
 editing software. With prices starting as low as $899 suggested retail, iMac
 continues to be an incredible value and Apple's most affordable computer.
     Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple
 II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Apple
 is committed to bringing the best personal computing experience to students,
 educators, creative professionals and consumers around the world through its
 innovative hardware, software and Internet offerings.
     NOTE:  Apple, the Apple logo, Macintosh, Firewire, iMac and iMovie are

 names may be trademarks of their respective owners.
