Lexmark is targeting the corporate market with its latest black and white laser printer, a 12 page per minute model priced at #615.
The Optra K 1220 sits between the company's Optra E Plus and Optra S 1255 models, features a 33MHz processor (Intel's 80960JF) and has 600x600dpi resolution.
Lexmark product manager Simon Brown claimed: "It competes well with HP's 8 page per minute model which costs #650."
The standard 2Mb memory is expandable to 66Mb, and there is also an option to add a 1.2Gb hard drive. The printer offers a maximum sheet input capacity of 740, if an optional tray adding 450 if used. It measures 286mm in height x 402mm width, and is 415mm deep.
Like other Lexmark printers, it comes with a 12 month on-site warranty, which can be extended to 3 years.
A price for the extension has not been confirmed yet, but should be around #100 in total.
The Optra K 1220 will be available next week when the company will also launch its new colour printer strategy.
