speeding up print jobs
Posted on 1998-03-16
This q is suposed to be a topic for discusion, I hope you will all have somethig to say on the subject and as such I will award points to more than one expert here.
The problem is this, I have a very large MS Publisher 97 job, the working file is about 40Mb when saved to the disk. There is a lot of grafics. It is prined on a new HP-890c and the os is W95. The job is very slow to print, with the printer aparently waiting for the computer, (if I print the job directly to the port then it goes a bit faster).
I am going to upgrade the PC and the real q is, should the computer have more memory or a faster processor to improve the print speed, or should I change the printer or should I build a realy cheap PC to use as a print server and network them or should I dig out one of the dusty old print buffers I have under the desk?
What do _you_ think?
