Rumor has it that jwhitton may have mentioned these words:

It would depend on how you define "General Purpose." CompuGraphic had one 
(the 8400 is the one I worked with) that used photo paper you had to 
develop, but it was designed more for typography. If you define typographic 
uses as "general purpose" than there was. If not, you prolly won't find any 
because the photographic paper was quite expensive.

I'd wager that Linotype & others had similar systems, but I only worked 
with the CompuGraphic back in the day.
