The company celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer
Hewlett-Packard (HP) introduced three new
today, including the world's fastest to date -- all in time for the company's 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer.
HP's three latest additions to the printer lineup are the HP Officejet Pro X, the HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer and the HP Officejet Pro 276dw Multifunction Printer.
The HP Officejet Pro X, which is designed for small and medium-sized businesses, is recognized as the world's fastest printer by Guinness World Records. It performs at twice the speed and half the cost of laser printers, delivering professional documents at as many as 70 pages per minute. It can print quickly and quietly by printing four colors of ink onto a sheet of paper at one time while the printhead stays in a stationary position.
The Officejet Pro X is also Energy Star qualified, using up to 50 percent less energy than laser printers.
Those interested in an Officejet Pro X can pick one up starting today. The single-function models start at $449 while the multi-function models start at $649.
The HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer and the HP Officejet Pro 276dw Multifunction Printer are more for medium-sized businesses that want enterprise manageability solutions like HP Universal Print Drivers and HP Web Jetadmin. It also prints documents for up to 50 percent lower cost per page than laser printers.
These two models have not been priced yet, and will be available this spring.
Now is a particularly special time for HP, as it celebrates it 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer. The first one was released in February 1988 for $995, and had a speed of 2 pages per minute.

Not in the same sense as a fax.
For example, if my tenant signs a lease and email it to me, I sign it, that does not mean it's legally binding.
If they were to fax it, then it would be.
Faxes use a point to point protocol that is very hard to tamper with. Additionally, the cover page and at the bottom of each page there's that bit of info on the bottom line that provides authentication.
Now some institutions will accept digitally signed and encrypted emails. If it comes from a verifiable source. however most companies will not accept emails, because they cannot trust that it has not been tampered with. They just don't want to open themselves to the liability.
Even virtual faxes emulate the point to point transmission so those are accepted by most as same as.
Of course depending on where you live that may differ on what is and isn't legally binding, but in the US while a lot of places may accept emails, even more will not. Some institutions are even stricter than that and will not accept faxed documents.
