The LaserWriter Pro 600 was a midrange monochrome laser printer from the LaserWriter series that was released by Apple Computer for the professional market in January 1993, along with the higher-end LaserWriter Pro 630.

Description[]

The Pro 600 could print at up to a resolution of 600-dpi from a Canon LBP-EX print engine that could output 8 pages-per-minute with a rated life of 450,000 pages. It is compatible with HP LaserJet 4 toner cartridges. It consumes less power in a more compact, but taller, enclosure than the preceding LaserWriter II series.[1] Upgrading the printer's RAM from the base configuration of 4 MB to at least 8 MB would increase the printer's operating resolution from 300 to 600-dpi and enable PhotoGrade, which improves the printed appearance of lower resolution (300-dpi) grayscale images with finer halftones. However, shipping units had the memory factory upgraded to 8 MB, enabling all these features.[2]

The 25 MHz Motorola 68030 processor could rasterize images from PostScript Level 2 or PCL 4+ printer data. The data could be transmitted through a LocalTalk network to its RS-422 serial port, or a direct PC connection to its RS-232 serial port or parallel port.[1]
