LaserWriter Plus

Introduced: January 1, 1986
Terminated: February 1, 1988


The LaserWriter Plus was virtually identical to the original LaserWriter.  The primary differences were the change in laser technology and the amount of memory.  The original LaserWriter used electrophotography to print while the LaserWriter Plus used an actual laser.  Additionally, the ROM was increased from 512KB to 1MB.


The LaserWriter Plus, released over a year after the original LaserWriter, was not very different from the first.  As part of the much-hyped “Macintosh Office,” the LaserWriter Plus capitalized on some newer technical advancements but in all other respects was the same.
