Multi-function printer

Will any of the new multi-function printers work with a Power Computing 7100? We have a setup with a 7100 and an SE linked to an Apple Personal LaserWriter. Would like to add a multi-function printer either to the network or to the 7100.

Thanks.

What do you mean by "multi-function" printers?

The all in one copier/fax/scanner/printer/toaster units.... I would think they can be hooked to your mac, as long as you have drivers for it and correct cabling.

First thing I would do, is to check the companies web-sites and see if they support Macs.

The multi-function printer must support a serial connection (printer port, modem port) if you are going to access it from the SE. The 7100 should have built-in Ethernet in addition to the serial ports (printer, modem).

The PowerComputing machine is a Mac and will behave like one.
