LaserWriter IINTX

The LaserWriter IINTX was the top end of Apple’s first generation LaserWriter II family and a more powerful successor to the LaserWriter Plus. It was considered the best laser printer on the market at the time. The LaserWriter II family of printers all used the same 8 page-per-minute 300 dot-per-inch Canon LBP-SX engine, but each model had a different logic board.

Apple LaserWriter II

The LaserWriter IINTX was the fastest LaserWriter yet with a 16.67 MHz 68000 CPU, a SCSI port for connecting an external hard drive to store fonts so they wouldn’t have to be sent over a LocalTalk network, and up to 12 MB of memory to store fonts and multiple pages.

The LaserWriter IINTX has the same font set as the LaserWriter Plus and LaserWriter IINT.

The LaserWriter II series was over 20 lb. lighter than the LaserWriter and LaserWriter Plus.
