The LaserWriter is a laser printer, which was introduced in 1985 by Apple.
The first model was PostScript -capable and one of the first laser printers for the mass market. With AppleTalk, it could be used by up to 16 users simultaneously. Together with the WYSIWYG technology of the Apple Macintosh and the same time introduced by Aldus Corporation layout software PageMaker, the LaserWriter was an essential tool for the then emerging desktop publishing.
Apple has the manufacture of printers set later.
