Personal LaserWriter NT

Introduced: December 1990
Terminated: October 1993


The Personal LaserWriter NT ran a Motorola 68000 at a speed of 12Mhz.  Like the Personal LaserWriter SC, it could produce about four pages a minute at 300 DPI.  A 1.25MB ROM and 8MB RAM allowed the printer to handle more memory intensive tasks than the SC.


In order to make a LaserWriter for personal use, Apple had to cut back on many of the features in the Personal LaserWriter NT.  Initially, the computers were shipped with out a CPU, however later models did include processors.  Although Ethernet was never supported, LocalTalk Networking was possible.
