  • The Color StyleWriter Pro was a color inkjet printer manufactured and sold by Apple in 1994. It was based on the Canon BJC-600 series of Bubble Jet printers, with which it shares ink cartridge compatibility. Its distinguishing feature among Color StyleWriter printers is its use of separate ink cartridges for each of three colors plus black. In contrast, other Color StyleWriters used a combined color cartridge plus a black cartridge.-Jonathan Berkowitz
