Digital Introduces Low-Priced Color Ink Jet Printer
MAYNARD, Mass. (AP) _ Digital Equipment Corp. on Wednesday introduced a color ink jet printer for personal computers priced less than a similar model by Hewlett-Packard Inc.
The DECcolorwriter 120ic printer will cost $355. The color ink is built into the printer, so customers do not have to buy a separate color kit.
Hewlett-Packard’s DeskJet 560c, which went on sale last month, has a list price of $599, said Jeri Flynn, a spokeswoman for Hewlett-Packard.
Digital also announced a color-capable DECwriter 110i printer, priced at $319. An optional color package would cost $44.
Hewlett Packard makes a color-capable HP DeskJet 540 jet printer, for $365, with a $49 optional color package.
