APPLE ANNOUNCES NEW STANDARD CONFIGURATION FOR LASERWRITER PRO 600

 TOKYO, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a product description of Apple LaserWriter Pro 600 from Apple Computer:
 Product Description:
 In response to strong customer demand, Apple Computer, Inc. is upgrading the standard configuration of the Apple LaserWriter Pro 600 to include 8MB of RAM. This move makes 600 dot-per-inch (dpi) resolution and Apple's PhotoGrade technology standard, built-in features of the printer. At its introduction on Jan. 6, 1993, the Apple LaserWriter Pro 600 shipped with 4MB of RAM on the controller board, and was bundled with another 4MB of RAM as a special introductory offer.
 The 600 dpi Apple LaserWriter Pro 600 offers superior grayscale image quality, high-performance throughput, extensive paper-handling capabilities, and ease of setup and use in Macintosh, Windows or mixed environments. It is based on the 25MHz Motorola 68030 microprocessor and includes Adobe PostScript Level 2. It is designed for small- and large-business users seeking a cost-effective, high-volume workgroup laser printer with excellent print quality.
 Significance:
 Equipping the LaserWriter Pro 600 with 8MB of RAM allows users to take advantage of the printer's 600 dpi high-resolution printing capabilities or PhotoGrade, Apple's advanced printing technology for near-photographic quality grayscale images. PhotoGrade provides the equivalent of 1,000 dpi printing with 91 levels of gray--30 percent more than was previously available in other printers. This means that even high-end graphics professionals can use the printers for proofing, and often final output.
 Pricing and Availability:
 The U.S. suggested retail price of the 8MB configuration Apple LaserWriter Pro 600 remains the same--U.S. SRP $2,099. Pricing and availability of this configuration may vary in other countries.
 Availability:
 The Apple LaserWriter Pro 600 is currently offered through authorized Apple resellers worldwide.
