The printer, which sells for $1,200, is designed for use with the Macintosh Plus, SE and Macintosh II families. It is QuickDraw-based and is claimed to work with all popular Macintosh business software, and Hewlett has added font-scaling technology, which provides a continuous selection of font sizes up to 250 points. The printer comes with four screen-font families – Helvetica, Times, Courier and Symbol in normal, italic, bold and bold italic. In combination with QuickDraw, documents will look the same on the HP DeskWriter and a PostScript-based printer such as the Apple LaserWriter.
