Yep, get yourself one of these, before lidl runs out. They don't always re-strock. I've had one for about a year (paid around £30 online) and they're dead useful, even though the software is a tad cantankerous. The really useful thing is being able to set up repeat prints with increasing number ranges and underlining for making up connector labels neatly.
It's slightly less convenient for one-off labels than a handheld machine, but the added design flexibility is a really big bonus.
The tape isn't cheap (The specialty flexible cable tape in particular) and the cutting mechanism seems a little wasteful of tape between independent print runs.
Other than that, I've used to label around 200 XLR connectors with cable numbers and it's worked a treat.

The P-Touch Editor Software is available for Mac here for the PT2700 (which is the bigger brother and the one I have on my desk at work here)
it may work with the PT 1230PC and would be worth a punt as it's free...
