Apple Releases Bevy of New Printers -- Apple today announced not one, not two, but three new printers. At the high end, the Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS is a 600 dpi, PostScript color laser printer with an Apple Price of $6,989, designed to produce high-quality photographic output in mixed-platform environments. In the middle, the LaserWriter 4/600 PS delivers 600 dpi, PostScript printing for less than $1,000. Finally, for the executive who must have everything, there's the Color StyleWriter 2200, a portable color inkjet printer weighing in at just over three pounds, capable of printing a color page in about three minutes, and with an Apple Price of $419.
