HP Designjet 650C Printer - MacOS: Connecting to a Macintosh Computer

Introduction
There are two solutions for connecting an HP Designjet 650 printer to a Macintosh: a hardware solution (optimum HP solution), and a software solution (third-party). The HP Designjet 650c/ps comes ready to connect to a Macintosh computer.
 note:
The part numbers listed below have been discontinued and are no longer available. Part numbers listed below are provided to customers in the possibility that they may be found at other sources.
Hardware solution
An HP Designjet 650 printer requires a PostScript (R) SIMM to become Macintosh compatible. This upgrade gives the printer similar features and capabilities to the HP Designjet 650c/ps printer (C3701A, C3792A), which comes ready to connect to a Macintosh. Additional items necessary for a Macintosh connection include cabling and a driver.
The HP Designjet 650c printer comes standard with Centronics parallel and RS-232-C serial ports.
