Cupertino, California-based Apple Computer, Inc.(NASDAQ: AAPL) is a leading manufacturer of personal computers and related software products. Apple pioneered the introduction of computers in the consumer market in 1976, and the Apple Macintosh, first released in 1984, remains the company's core product. Apple's four major product lines are the iMac, PowerMac, PowerBook, and the iBook. In 1997, co-founder Steve Jobs returned to Apple and has orchestrated a tremendous revival for the company. Apple's new Internet strategy and operability of Mac OSX should provide additional growth opportunities for the company. As the computer market matures, companies that can reinvent themselves will stay at the head of the pack, and Apple is making strides to secure its future.
