        Supposedly the 1000's have a problem dealing with later laser
printers and such on their parallel ports. I myself always ran
fairly old dot matrix printers off of mine when I was using them, but
wouldn't think it'd be any more of a problem than other XT class
machines without the enhanced parallel ports that many current
printers depend on.
