Hewlett Packard has introduced new laser printers and multifunction devices, which are compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 8.1-9.x.
The new HP Color LaserJet 1500 printer series offers four pages per minute color and 16 ppm black, and is targeted to customers who need to print presentations, brochures and reports. The series offers one-door access, high-yield print cartridges and “smart” toner cartridge printing that let you view your supplies status. Prices for the HP Color LaserJet 1500 series start at US$799.
HP has also introduced two new multifunction products (mfp’s) designed specifically for large-format printing. The HP Designjet 815 mfp integrates large-format color printing, copying and scanning in one device. The HP Designjet Scanner 4200 brings scanning and copying capabilities to existing Designjet customers.
In addition, HP introduced two new monochrome multifunction products. The HP Multifunction Finisher lets businesses produce booklets and other marketing collateral in-house by adding print-finishing capabilities to an existing HP LaserJet 9000 series laser and multifunction printers.
The HP LaserJet 9000L mfp expands the 9000 mfp product line to include a 40 ppm device that provides print, copy, scan and fax functionality in a single, integrated solution. Pricing for the new multifunction devices weren’t available.
Also, HP has rolled out new HP Total Print Management solutions — a combination of HP products, including Web Jetadmin, Print Server Appliance, Jetdirect, imaging and printing services, and intelligent printers. See HP’s Web site for details.
