Hi,

I've got two HP LaserJet 4M+, which I like very much
and are still working fine.

Recently, I've bought an LaserJet 4+ (which I'm waiting
for). It's not an 'M', and it doesn't have the PostScript
module.

I've got some questions:

1. are those two printers (the 4+ and the 4M+)
exactly the same, besides the fact that the 'M' has
got a PostScript module?

2. are the toners identical?

3. which PostScript module exactly am I looking for if
I want to add PostScript to the 4+ ?

Thanks a lot for any help,

Jean

The 'M' also normally has a network card; they were originally marketed
for use with the Macintosh, which (a) required PostScript and (b) had no
parallel port.

Yes. 92298A or 92298X (latter is high capacity).

You need a module for the 4+. The module for the 4 will *not* work. The
HP part number is C3129A. If the printer doesn't have much memory,
consider some more (but the PS option does take one of the four slots).
