Perfect for busy workgroups of Apple Macintosh and Windows users alike, the Apple LaserWriter Select 360 printer delivers exceptional output with extraordinary speed— and at a price that’s sure to make you smile.

The first thing you’ll notice about the LaserWriter Select 360 is its outstanding print quality. Offering 600-dot-per-inch (dpi) resolution, the LaserWriter Select 360 produces consistently superior output with crisp text, rich graphics, perfect curves, and no jaggies.

The LaserWriter Select 360 also uses a RISC processor, so it can churn out your documents at a fast clip —up to 10 pages per minute while you continue to use your computer for other tasks. Whether you use Macintosh, Windows, or MS-DOS computers, the LaserWriter Select 360 provides the plug-and-play simplicity you need. All ports stay active simultaneously, so the printer can accept jobs from all types of computers without your having to change a single setting. And the LaserWriter Select 360 automatically switches between PostScript Level 2 and PCL 5 languages.

When you add the PostScript Fax Card, the LaserWriter Select 360 offers another big advantage: You can use it to receive and send faxes as easily as you can print— from both Macintosh and Windows computers. What’s more, you can print them on plain paper at up to 600-dpi resolution. Everyone on the network can use the LaserWriter Select 360 to send faxes to any PostScript or standard Group 3 fax machine and know they’ll arrive looking their best.

With two versatile paper trays built-in, plus an optional third tray, the LaserWriter Select 360 supports a total paper capacity of 800 sheets.
