LaserWriter Pro 600 Upgraded

Technical Support Coordinator, BAKA Computers Inc.

In addition to introducing its new LaserWriter Select printers, Apple announced last week that the basic LaserWriter Pro 600 model will now ship with 8 MB of RAM as a standard feature. This will enable LaserWriter Pro 600 owners to take advantage of the printer's 600 dot-per-inch resolution and PhotoGrade capability without having to purchase a memory expansion.

Apple originally offered the memory expansion free of charge as an "introductory offer," and has apparently decided to make it a permanent change. This makes sense, as it will allow the LaserWriter Pro 600 to offer 600 dpi printing right out of the box.

The LaserWriter Pro 630 still differs from the 600 model in that it offers an EtherTalk port in addition to the LocalTalk, serial, and parallel ports that are common to both printers, as well as two SCSI ports (one external HDI-30 connector and one internal connector) to allow the use of an internal or external hard disk for font storage.
