    Default Pick it up?? Or not...

    So, hard rubbish collection my way ATM.

    There's an Apple Color LaserWriter 12/600PS out.

    Looks good cosmetically. Pretty rare? Weighs a TONNE.

    Should I grab it??

    ISTR that they have ethernet, and can be printed to by modern Macs and PCs over a network. If you have the room for it, grab it.
    Good. Fast. Cheap. Pick two...

    I have a 16/600 and it is a good solid little performer. Sits on the network, and takes it's prints from all comers. If you want/need plain mono printing, having a postscript laser printer is best. Far cheaper to run than inkjets, and being postscript, virtually any system, even back into 8bit days, should be able to produce a postscript file.

    . . . . but then if it doesn't work. . . .

    Is it heavier than an 8500? That's the biggest LaserWriter I've got. I think Howard in Wagga uses a 12/600 for his daily business.

    If it's in good cosmetic condition and can do ethernet, then it's a no-brainer, but there is always the issue of space... printers can be a little tricky to stack...

    Thanks for the bad influence everyone. Went and grabbed it

    Front is now scuffed and has a crack since the other day

    Hopefully it works. Pics will follow.

    Next time grab it first and then decide if you want to keep it. You can always put it back!
