The All-in-Ones feature USB connectivity and are cross platform. The US$149 X73 will support Mac operating systems at launch (including Mac OS X), with a Mac compatible $199 X83 to follow later this year.
“Lexmark is the first to deliver consumers industry-leading 2400 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) print resolution on all paper types, a flexible flatbed scanner, and top-quality copy capabilities — all under US $200,” said Tim Craig, president of Lexmark Consumer Printer Division, in a statement.
The X83 and X73 All-In-One Print Centers offer a maximum 2400 x 1200 dpi print resolution in black and color on all paper types and deliver a seven picoliter color droplet size for smoother color blending and more vivid output, he added. The X83 generates speeds up to 12 pages per minute (ppm) in black and up to six ppm in color. The X73 can handle up to nine ppm in black and up to five ppm in color.
The All-in-One Print Centers feature flatbed scanners with removable lids. Both units offer up to 600 x 1200 dpi optical resolution and 48-bit color scan depth. Plus, the X83 boasts up to 19,200 dpi enhanced resolution, while the X73 features up to 9600 dpi enhanced resolution.
The X83 and X73 All-In-One Print Centers deliver up to 99 copies from one original and have a zoom range of 25 to 400 percent for reducing and enlarging images. The X83 produces up to 10 copies per minute (cpm) in black and up to three cpm in color, and the X73 produces up to nine cpm in black and up to three cpm in color. The X83 All-In-One Print Center can also function as a standalone copier.
The X83 and X73 also ship with software that lets you edit, store, send and receive documents via fax and e-mail through you computer. The Scan to PC Fax capability features black and color fax applications.
The two units also come with an Accu-Feed paper handling system that virtually eliminates paper jams and misfeeds, enabling users to choose from a range of print media.
