iMac Wraps up Three Straight Months as
Best Selling Desktop in PC Superstores

CUPERTINO, California--Dec. 1, 1998-- iMac is the best selling desktop computer in PC superstores in the U.S., earning the top spot with consumers in October for the third consecutive month, according to ZD Market Intelligence. The complete study is available at www.zdinfobeads.com.

"Being number one in October is a sure sign of iMac sales momentum heading into the holidays," said Matt Sargent, senior analyst and author of the study. "While both engineering and marketing have helped its success, I believe that the primary strength of iMac lies in its competitive price."

"iMac is the perfect computer for getting onto the Internet fast and hassle-free," said Steve Jobs, Apple's interim CEO. "I just hope we've made enough for the holiday rush."

Launched in mid-August, Apple shipped 278,000 units in just six weeks, making iMac the hottest selling computer in Apple's history. iMac is available through its current resellers including CompUSA, Best Buy, Micro Center, Fry's, Computer Town, J&R, ComputerWare, AIS Computer and Computers Stores Northwest, Inc., as well as hundreds of Apple Specialist stores and through the online Apple Store (www.apple.com).
