LaserWriter IISC

Introduced: January 1, 1988
Terminated: July 1, 1990


The LaserWriter IISC is a laser printer produced by Apple.  It had a Motorola 68000 processor that could run at speeds of up to 7.5Mhz.  It used the QuickDraw interpreter and an SCSI interface.

The LaserWriter IISC had a 300 DPI and could produce about eight pages a minute.


The LaserWriter IISC was a less expensive alternative to the other models in the LaserWriter II line.  Using QuickDraw instead of Adobe PostScript helped the price of the machine, but also limited its capabilities.  Instead of the LocalTalk network, the SCSI interface was used, another cost saving measure.  However, it meant that the printer was only compatible with Macintosh computers.
