  • This is one of Apple’s LaserWriter line of printers. It replaced LaserWriter 300 series. It is capable of printing four (4) pages per minute. Another improvement is the improved resolution. - Mario Romano

  • This printer is as old as the classic exe files. Four pages per minute is quite slow from my point of view as long as there are printers which can do that at 8/16 pages per minute.
