S1300i

Back at the dawn of personal computing, people began to talk about The Next Big Thing on the horizon—a paperless office. Computers would make our lives so simple that we would no longer need documents on paper. Decades later, this utopian state is still not a reality. Businesses deal with about as much paper as they always have. In our personal lives, we wrestle with ever increasing piles of invoices, correspondence, tax documents, and junk mail daily.

On October 13, 2009, in Macintosh, printer, Review, by John Nemerovski

Photosmart C4780 Printer/Scanner/Copier
Company: HP

Price: under $100 online

Most consumers won’t do a thorough evaluation of every aspect of their multifunction inkjet printer (MFP). If the darn thing prints reliably, makes a decent scan, and copies documents without too much fuss, people will be more concerned about the eventual cost of replacement ink than the details of software and hardware associated with a modern sophisticated device.

Computers are so common now that, if we know someone who does not have one, we are mystified how that could even be possible. But the promise, or prediction, of the paperless world has never come to pass. If anything, the commonality of computers has only increased our need for paper. Be it for documents or pictures, printers of all shapes and sizes can be found plugged into most computers, whether using a direct USB connection or over a local area network.
