Apple Puts On A High-Tech Display
Wellington, 2 May 2002 - Wellingtonians have a chance to log on to some of the world's funkiest computers and play with the latest digital tools and toys at the Apple Autumn Update Roadshow next week (May 7) at the St. James Theatre.
Apple is showcasing its technology and hardware designs that have seen the Apple brand enjoy surging popularity amongst an increasingly style-conscious population.
Products on display include the powerful new operating system Mac OS X, the recently released G4 iMac with its built-in flat-panel screen, and the 23-inch Apple Cinema High Definition (HD) display.
A range of Apple applications also feature at the show, such as iTunes, which converts songs from CDs into MP3 files that can then be burnt onto CD, and iMovie, which easily enables Mac users to create their own desktop movies.
The show hits the road just as statistics have been released that kiwi kids are growing up using Macs. 13 out of the country's 15 new state schools selected to educate children are using the Mac platform over the PC.
