Personal LaserWriter 320

Introduced: October 1993
Terminated: September 1995


The Personal LaserWriter 320 offered several upgrades over the lower end Personal LaserWriter 300.  It had an AMD 29205 processor running at 16Mhz.  There was a ROM of 4MB and a maximum RAM of 8MB.  It used the PostScript level 2 interpreters and communicated via LocalTalk.  It could print up to four pages a minute with a DPI of 300.


The addition of PostScript and a CPU made the Personal LaserWriter 320 a far more powerful printer than the Personal LaserWriter 300.  The addition of LocalTalk networking made it an excellent computer for small business networks.

  • This printer is one of Apple’s great line of printers. Although it is simple, this printer is very effective. So sad it had to go away. - Mario Romano
