LEXMARK ANNOUNCES ADVANCED IBM 4039 LASERPRINTER FAMILY SETTING NEW PRICE-PERFORMANCE STANDARD

 LEXINGTON, Ky., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexmark International Inc. today announced the IBM LaserPrinter 4039, an affordable family of intelligent, high-resolution desktop printers that offers advanced networking capabilities and can be easily upgraded to meet future customer needs.
 With five models priced from $1,599 to $3,399, the IBM LaserPrinter 4039 family offers print speeds of 10, 12 and 16 pages per minute and more standard functions and features for the dollar than any similar products on the market today.
 A duplex attachment for two-sided printing is standard on one model and optional on the other new printers offered by Lexmark, a former IBM division that is now an independent company.
 Each model features a high-performance AMD RISC processor, has built-in PostScript and PCL5 compatibility and can automatically select the right language for the job. PostScript language is an option that costs as much as $775 extra on some laser printers.
 The new printers also offer 600 dots-per-inch resolution with standard Print Quality Enhancement Technology (PQET) and PictureGrade for exceptional print quality and sharper halftone images. Lexmark pioneered affordable 600 dpi resolution in desktop laser printer in 1991.
 The compact, space-saving printers include an array of intelligent capabilities so they can work with virtually every kind of commercial software application and can be easily and quickly installed in leading network computing environments.
 Every 4039 model has been designed so customers can upgrade to the latest technology with easily-installed, snap-in memory modules that contain updated programming code.
 "These next generation Lexmark printers set a new price-performance standard for the laser printer market," said Marvin Mann, Lexmark chairman.
 "We have received an outstanding response to these new laser printers from the customers who worked with us during the development cycle," he said.
 Two models, the IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L and 4039 12L, which print at a maximum 16 and 12 pages per minute respectively, deliver high performance printing with broad connectivity, network printer management software and high-volume paper handling capabilities required in demanding network computing environments.
 The IBM LaserPrinter 4039 12R and 4039 10R, which run at maximum speeds of 12 and 10 pages per minute respectively, provide excellent performance and function in general office and network applications where affordability is more critical than maximum throughput.
 Additionally, the IBM LaserPrinter 10R Duplex model comes with a paper-saving duplex feature that provides the lowest-cost, two-sided desktop laser printer available.
 The IBM LaserPrinter 4039 is the second laser printer family developed and manufactured entirely in the United States by Lexmark since becoming an independent company two years ago.
 The IBM LaserPrinter 4039 models are available immediately through Lexmark's exclusive network of business partners and its alliance partner, IBM.
 Lexmark is a global information products company that develops, manufactures and markets IBM personal printers, IBM typewriters, office equipment supplies and keyboards.
 The PCL5 and PostScript datastream emulations in the new printers were co-developed by Lexmark and Phoenix Technologies Ltd.
