The LaserJet 5, 5M, and 5N: an Option for Every Environment!

The HP LaserJet 5 (EX-II) was created to advance the proven performance of the LaserJet 4 Plus even further, and it does just that. It is even easier to use and is 32 percent faster with a 33Mhz processor and 12 ppm EXII engine. The HP PCL 6 language increases its capability to print complex pages, while remaining compatible with past and future HP LaserJet printers, and its bi-directional port transfers data twice as fast. It has Industry-standard parallel, serial, and wireless infrared ports. The LaserJet 5's expandable design allows you to add only the features you need, while giving you the flexibility to add capabilities as your printing needs change.

The LaserJet 5N version adds built-in network readiness for shared printing in small Ethernet 10Base-T workgroups, as well as Novell NDPS capability.

The LaserJet 5M version is network-ready for Macintosh and mixed Macintosh/PC environments, with its built-in HP JetDirect print server for Ethernet/LocalTalk and genuine Adobe POstScript Level 2, as well as PCL 6.
