The LaserWriter IISC was a bit of an oddity. It was the low end of the LaserWriter II family, and to keep costs down Apple left out LocalTalk networking and Postscript. The IISC connects to a single Mac using a SCSI cable. QuickDraw images are rendered in the computer and then sent to the printer.
This means that the IISC can get by with just 1 MB of memory and a 7.45 MHz 68000 CPU – less power than the slowest Macintosh.
The LaserWriter IISC could be upgraded by replacing the logic board with a IINT, IINTX, IIF, or IIG board. This turns it into a networkable Postscript printer.
