Lexmark has introduced what it claims to be the first laser-quality colour inkjet printer. Priced at #279, the 7200 prints at a resolution of 1,200x1,200dpi, thanks to eye surgery technology that uses lasers to create ultra-small nozzles for contol of ink droplets. Lexmark is targeting small offices that need high quality output but can't afford a laser printer. At 1.44 million dots per square inch, Lexmark claims the resolution is 38% higher than rival offerings. In terms of speed, the 7200 has an output of 8ppm in black draft mode and 3ppm in colour draft mode. It is also photographic-ready as it comes with a photo cartridge that allows for six-colour printing. Driver support for NT is now included in the box. "We believe we've broken new ground," said Tony Hall, director of Lexmark's consumer products division. "This is the first printer to produce print quality equal to a laser." The 7200 is expected to ship in the next week. Lexmark: 01628 481 500.
