Epson has launched a colour laser printer for the small business and home office market. The AcuLaser C1000 is priced at $2995 (ex GST), and is equipped with Epson's proprietary advanced colour and laser printing technologies, including multiple-screen printing, colour resolution improvement technology (CRIT), fine dot control, and colour half-toning to ensure detailed, accurate and consistent colour reproduction. The C1000 prints at 5 pages per minute in colour and 20ppm in black-and-white, thanks to an optimised printer driver for processing and a 200MHz RISC on-board processor. With a first-print time of 25 seconds for colour, the new printer is PC- and Apple Mac-compatible, runs in Windows 95/98/Me/2000 and NT4.0 environments, and is available immediately. An internal 10/100 Base TX print server is optional.
