LaserWriter Select 310

The LaserWriter Select 310 was something of an anomaly for Apple, a PostScript printer without network support. The 310 is part of Apple’s low end 5 page-per-minute LaserWriter Select family that replaced the earlier Personal LaserWriter series.

LaserWriter Select familyThe LaserWriter Select 310 has a standard Mac RS-422 DIN-8 serial port and also has a parallel port for use with PCs. It is built around a Fuji Xerox print engine, unlike earlier LaserWriter models, which all used Canon print engines.

You need special drivers for the LaserWriter Select 310; it does not work with the standard LaserWriter drivers, which are configured for network access.
