The end result of all this new toner and cartridge technology is a set of printers and multifunction devices that HP claims are smaller, easier to set up and maintain, up to 53 per cent more energy efficient compared to previous models in the same class, and which can wake up and print up to 40 per cent faster than competitors.
The new models that incorporate JetIntelligence include:
" HP Color LaserJet Pro M252: a printer only that's suitable for the home or office workgroups of 1-5 users. It's good for 250-2500 pages per month. It costs $249.
" HP LaserJet Pro M277n: a multifunction printer for the home or for office workgroups of 1-5 users. It's good for 250-2500 pages per month and costs $349.
" HP Laserjet Enterprise M522dn ($899) and Laserjet Enterprise M533 ($999): these are laser printers designed for workgroups of 5-15 users and have a recommended page output of 2000-6000 pages per month. The models differ in speed, with the M533 being able to print more pages within the same time frame.
