Personal LaserWriter LS

Introduced: March 1, 1991
Terminated: May 1, 1993


The Personal LaserWriter LS had .5MB of RAM that could be expanded to 1MB.  It used the QuickDraw language and communicated via a serial port.  It could print four pages a minute with a DPI of 300.


The continuation of the Personal LaserWriter line, the Personal LaserWriter LS, like its predecessors, provided a home user with some of the quality of a LaserWriter at a much lower price.  By leaving out elements like a fast processor, upgradeable RAM and PostScript, the cost of the Personal LaserWriter LS was kept low.
