Dell launches own-brand printers
One day my prints will come
Dell's entry into the printer market with own-brand products kicked off today with the launch of four models.
The Dell Personal All-in-One A940 puts colour printing, scanning and copying into a single $139 unit. It prints at 4800x1200dpi, but scans at 600x2400dpi. Colour printing averages at 12ppm; monochrome at 17ppm.
The Dell Personal Laser Printer P1500 is a 600dpi, 19ppm machine for home and office. It retails for $289. For networked organisations, the Dell Workgroup Laser Printers S2500 and S2500n provide 600dpi, 22ppm printing for $499 and $839, respectively. The S2500n includes a built-in Ethernet port. All the others sport USB and parallel ports.
And following on from Dell's launch of its PC recycling programme last week, the company said it will cart off customers' old printers when they buy a new Dell job. Each Dell printer comes with a postage-paid label - just attach it to the printer's box and put your old printer inside. The PC recycling scheme costs users $15. ®
