    Laptop printers

    I'm considering buying a laptop printer. I'm thinking about spending around $200.

    What would you suggest?

    I don't think your laptop will fit through a printer... :shocked:

    What makes it a printer for a laptop... as opposed to a regular printer?

    Indeed!

    Well Gertlex, since laptops are portable, so should the printer be.

    Laptop printers fit in a typical laptop case with the laptop in there too. Some even have alternate power sources.

    With this, when I am at Starbucks sipping on coffee and working on whatever, I have the print option available.

    I haven't been in the market for a while, but Sipix used to make some pretty decent ones.

    You won't need above 300dpi if you are doing text(for the most part), 400dpi would be a good target. Unless you are needing pictures don't worry about color, just more cartridges to buy.

    Other than that I would say just get one that is battery powered, a little more heavy, but must easier.

    I see.... I'm ignorant to the degree that I didn't know such small printers existed... :(

    Is it a Dell Inspirion E1505? :) Those are VERY popular on campus.

    Why on earth would you want to lug a printer around with you?

    *Beats donny with a stick*

    They weigh like 3-5lb, it is also cheaper in the long run than paying 50+ cents for printing at coffee shops and the like. If you are on the road a lot it just makes sense.

    Or you could just print things out at home or at work. Why on earth would you need to print things on the fly?

    Dondrei is confused because of the words 'work' and 'job'.

    I don't even use my printer at home, it's been out of commission for about eight months. I use the work printer on the very rare instance I need something printed out. Why bother when I can look at it just as easily on the screen?

    Well, if I had any need or desire to use a computer when I'm not at home or at work I'd get a laptop.

    I think Dondrei still uses white out to correct spelling errors on screen. :thumbsup:
