New LaserJet models 'pay for themselves'
Undoubtedly the most interesting product included in the launch was HP's Scanjet Professional 1000 mobile scanner. Powered via USB, it can capture documents and images at 600dpi in around half a minute. You'll be able to buy it for $295.
The HP OfficeJet 4500 All-in-One is the company's most affordable [[artnid:342087|inkjet multifunction printer]] series, starting at a recommended price of $129. Wired networking means the printer can be shared easily, and top-end models have integrated Wi-Fi. A flatbed scanner makes copying bulky documents easy and print speeds of up to 28 pages per minute can make short work of large print jobs.
HP yesterday launched a range of new LaserJet printers, scanners and [[artnid:346118|multifunction products]] that focus upon low power consumption and reduced paper usage. The HP LaserJet Pro P1102 is billed as the world's "most energy-efficient wireless laser printer" thanks to auto-on and auto-off circuitry that reduces power consumption to less than one Watt. It has a recommended retail price of $149.
HP's most affordable A3 colour laser printer comes in the form of the $2899 Color LaserJet Pro CP5225dn. It can handle 20ppm with both colour and monochrome printing, and is rated for up to 75,000 pages per month.

The HP LaserJet Pro P1102 is also available as a wireless model (the P1102W) for $189. HP's new printers have drivers and software stored in integrated flash memory, eliminating the need for a software CD.
The HP LaserJet Pro P1566 is a no-nonsense black-and-white laser printer. It can print at 22 pages per minute from its 250-sheet tray, and has a maximum duty cycle of 8000 sheets per month, making it well suited to small businesses. It will cost $329 when it's released.
The LaserJet Pro M1212nf is a 4-in-1 laser multifunction, with fax capabilities as well as the ability to scan, copy, and print. With HP's auto-on and auto-off circuitry as well as automatic double-sided printing, this printer offers a large feature set for its $399.
