The Personal LaserWriter 320 was a compact monochrome laser printer from the LaserWriter series that was released by Apple Computer for the home office market in June 1993.

Description[]

The 320 could print at a resolution of 300-dpi from a Canon LBP-PX print engine that could output 4 pages-per-minute with a rated life of 100,000 pages.[1] It is compatible with HP LaserJet 4ML toner cartridges. It utilized FinePrint to adjust individual dot sizes to simulate smoother edges produced by higher resolution printers.[2]

The 16 MHz AMD Am29205 processor could rasterize images from PostScript Level 2 printer data. It only supported LocalTalk networking over its RS-422 serial port. The smaller enclosure weighed about half as much as early Personal LaserWriter models with lower power consumption and cost in exchange for a shorter life expectancy.[1][2]

Discontinuation[]

The 320 was discontinued on September 16, 1995 and was superseded by the 600-dpi LaserWriter 4/600 PS.[1][3] A higher-output alternative was the LaserWriter Select 360.[4]
