Default S900 VS i960?

I have a S900. How much better is the i960 VS the S900? And is the i960 faster for text printing?

If you are looking for good text performance perhaps you should look at the i860. The s900 is trying to print text at 1200x2400 dpi which is overkill and that is why it is slow. The i950 and i960 are trying to print text at 1200x4800 which is even more overkill. If you try to reduce the quality and print resolution to speed up text you wind up getting grey text.
The i860 on the other hand Uses a dye black that prints at 1200x4800 for high resolution graphics and photos and it uses a pigment black that prints at a max resolution of 600x600dpi (plenty for text) that prints very fast text.
