The one which comes with NOS2.1, the built-in HP LaserJet 5MP (IrDA).

I don't know exactly, but the later model was hell slow in printing of a
single name card. The later model is probably faster in printing on the
parallel port and has a larger set of fonts and more memory and maybe a
newer Postscript.

It was not directly Newton related. The 3P can be switched into HPGL
mode and a Newton could send them serial HPGL codes as I do with an old
HP7440 Pen plotter. Then the Laser prints the same as the Plotter does
plot but much faster.
