The Hewlett Packard LaserJet IIP popularized the desktop personal laser printer. Released in 1989, the model was among the very first laserjets available for less than $1,000. Deemed a "milestone" printer by the New York Times, the paper touted the unit's light weight (the IIP weighed *just* 25 pounds). Here's what made the IIP tick.
The design was beige and boxy.
Note: This gallery was originally published in May, 2007, but I'm resurfacing it to celebrate the HP LaserJet IIP's 21st birthday in 2010.
