Hardware Description

The LaserWriter 8500 is Apple's premier, professional-quality work-group printing solution. It's the ideal choice for anyone who wants to print high volumes or complex documents quickly and with superior quality. Breaking new ground in advanced printing capabilities, the LaserWriter 8500 takes advantage of Adobe's new PostScript 3 language to provide higher performance, enhanced image quality, and advanced page processing. It also offers another Apple first that print professionals will find especially exciting: support for full-bleed printing on various paper sizes, up to ledger/A3. And its blazingly fast, 20-page-per-minute print speed and RISC processor set a new record for LaserWriter performance.
