Printers have been moved to their own categories.
Early Macintosh’s used Dot Matrix printers such as the ImageWriter series, or LaserWriter printers which were made for the Macintosh and used either a serial connection or AppleTalk through the serial printer port. Hewlett Packard gave Macintosh the first InkJet printers with the DeskWriter series. All Macs from the 128k through the Beige G3 had a Serial interface for the printer port.
Parallel printers are not useable by Macs without a rare PCI parallel card (Power PC’s) or an equally rare parallel to serial converter and software. HP did make DeskJet printers in the late ’90’s with both parallel and serial ports, thus eliminating the need for a separate DeskWriter series.
Starting with the iMac and Blue & White G3 Power Mac, USB became the standard connection for everything. USB cards for a PCI slot in most pre-G3 Power PC’s are still readily available and can be used with a USB printer.
All Models A9M0337, M1381
All Power On. While finding the Scanner software was a challenge, all were tested and do work or partially work in Mac OS 9.1. They will be shipped with what software I was able to find on the internet. They were made for Macintosh starting in 1988.
GS/OS on the Apple IIGS does have drivers for the Apple Scanner and OneScanner scanners. I am not sure what software would utilize the scans.
*More scanners will be added to this page as they surface.
Apple Scanner A9M0337
Two of these in stock, and they will both scan a preview using ofoto. The full scan process never completes. The Mac OS may be too new for these.

These were tested to scan into Photoshop.

Drivers and Documentation available at Epson:
I downloaded the Mac driver from Epson, installed it, plugged in the scanner and scanned with no problems.
This flatbed color scanner is a large one at 22"x13"x5".
50 pin SCSI Complete!
Just about plug and play on the Mac. Just install the software, plug it in and scan! It is clean with no discoloration. Color It! 3.0 is on the CD for the Mac - nice bonus and I'm sure there's goodies for the PC side as well. This one came from a friend who used to use Windows 98 on a Pentium III. It worked great on that and an the Mac as well!
