StyleWriters and Ethernet -- Last week, Apple announced the Color StyleWriter 1500 and 2500, which offer color inkjet printing at about $280 and $380, respectively. The new printers print in black at three and five pages per minute (though they are considerably slower with color), and the 2500 offers water-resistant ink. Apple also announced the StyleWriter EtherTalk Adapter, which enables users to connect a StyleWriter 2500, 2400, 2200, 1500, or 1200 to an EtherTalk network using either 10Base-T or ThinNet. Apple expects the EtherTalk Adapter to be available in early April for about $190. [GD]
