Color your work with a low-cost laser printer
A decade ago, a color workgroup printer was a luxury reserved for an office swimming in cash. It wasn't until about a year ago that color laser printers began to drop below $1,000, and now you can get one for a $500 pittance. If a rinky-dink inkjet won't do the trick for your office and you need a machine to punch color into text, charts, and graphics, check out these affordable color lasers.
We liked the great image output of the Dell 3100cn, although it may be too bulky for a home, and it won't work with Macs. The Samsung CLP-510N updates the popular CLP-500 series with a deep price drop. You can add these models to a network. The Konica Minolta Magicolor 2430DL introduces a PictBridge port so that realtors, insurers, and others can document their work from the field. Its sibling, the Windows-only 2400W costs $100 less and lacks the PictBridge port.
