In an effort to capture more school sales, Apple Computer Inc. introduced a line of Macintosh computers that will be sold only to educators and students.

The eMac computers, featuring 17-inch cathode ray tube monitors and 700 gigahertz G4 processors, are priced at $999 and $1,199--less than the flat-panel iMacs introduced in January.

The new computers are expected to be available in May.

Apple shares gained 95 cents, closing at $23.96 in Nasdaq trading.
