HP's LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer is quick and it lets you print using custom media. However, the cost of its consumables and the lack of automatic duplexing make the asking price unreasonable.

The HP LaserJet P2035n is a little taller than entry-level monochrome laser printers, but it doesn't take up a significant amount of space. It comes with USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports for local and networked printing. A model without a network connection is available for $549.

Unlike higher-end printers, the HP LaserJet P2035n lacks any physical display, so its settings must be configured through the Web-based interface. The settings are sparse; it's possible to configure basic paper and network settings, but there are no security or e-mail notification capabilities. Thankfully, the inclusion of the Bonjour networking protocol makes it easy for Macs to use the LaserJet P2035n over a local network.

Though capable of network printing, this is no workhorse. The LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer offers up 16MB of memory, which can't be upgraded. An input tray holds 250 sheets, while you'll be able to fit 50 sheets of custom-sized media through a multi-purpose tray on top. HP claims the printer can handle a maximum of 25,000 sheets per month but, with a recommended monthly duty cycle of 500 to 2000 sheets, it's clear this printer is primarily designed for light document printing.

Consumable replacement is easy; simply open the front panel and slide out the toner. Each 2300-page toner costs $140.93, or 6.1c per A4 page. This is expensive considering that even the dirt-cheap Fuji Xerox Phaser 3125/N only costs 4.7c per page.

The LaserJet P2035n exceeded HP's claimed print speed of 30 pages per minute in our real-world tests. It is also fairly quick when waking from idle mode, with the first page printed in an average of 8.5 seconds.

Though the printer's maximum resolution is only 600x600dpi, the quality is acceptable for text documents at text sizes as small as 7 point. Black and white graphics aren't too shabby either, though the low resolution means a lot of detail is lost on larger images.

If you need a basic document printer to share between three or four computers, the HP LaserJet P2035n will suffice. However, you can find get consumable costs and network capabilities from cheaper alternatives.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
