HP to deliver 'mopier' printer

Hewlett-Packard is poised to release a new type of printer with a very silly name.

Hewlett-Packard this week will announce the LaserJet 5Si printer, which the company defines as a "new category of network printer," called a mopier, (multiple original prints).

To advance the concept of many originals rather than one original and many copies, HP has designed the printer to include a technology that allows it to store print data on an internal 450Mb hard disk.

Other features include 600 x 600-dpi print resolution, 24-ppm performance, 45 PCL fonts, and 35 PostScript fonts. The printer will ship with drivers for Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Windows NT, as well as IBM OS/2 and MacOS.
