Hoping to recapture the lead in sales to the school field, Apple Computer Inc. on April 29 introduced a new line of Macintosh computers designed exclusively for schools.

The new "eMac" computer, an all-white, one-piece desktop unit that looks like the original iMac, features a 17-inch cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor and 700-megahertz G4 processor and is priced at $999—or $400 less than the flat-panel iMac that Apple introduced in January.

The eMac will be sold only to educators and students and is expected to be available in May.
