HP today announced two laser printers and seven laser-based all-in-ones (AOIs), as well as upgrades for its Universal Print Driver and its Web JetAdmin remote printer administration program. HP reps say the company’s new products put emphasis on what HP refers to as its portfolio of security, output management, and document capture solutions. The AIOs and printers both include color and monochrome models. Base prices run the gamut from $499 to $3,999.

The news on the software side—which includes partnering with other vendors to provide workflow solutions for document capture and document management—are of interest primarily for large organizations at the enterprise level. But as the range of prices for the printers and AIOs suggests, there’s news on the hardware side for any size office.

The two models of most interest for a small office are both sub-$1,000 color laser AIOs, the Color LaserJet CM1015 MFP ($499 street) and Color LaserJet CM1017 MFP ($699). Both copy, scan, and print, and both are built around the same engine rated at 8 pages per minute (ppm) for both color and monochrome. The key difference between them is that the CM1017 MFP includes a network connector and support for additional memory.

The two printers in the group are the Color LaserJet CP4005n ($1,299), rated at 25 ppm for color and 30 ppm for monochrome output, and the 35-ppm monochrome-only LaserJet P3005 ($549). In both cases, the price and speed make them potentially of interest to a small to medium size office with relatively heavy duty printing needs. Much the same comment applies to two of the monochrome-only AIOs, the 27-ppm LaserJet M3027 MFP ($1,499) and the 35-ppm LaserJet M3035 MFP ($1,999).

The three remaining AIOs are all aimed at the larger end of the small to medium size spectrum or at workgroups in large offices, and all three are strictly monochrome—the 45-ppm LaserJet M4345 MFP ($2,599), the 25-ppm LaserJet M5025 MFP ($2,999), and the 35-ppm LaserJet M5035 MFP ($3,999).

All five of the monochrome AIOs print, scan, and work as standalone copiers and digital senders (for scanning and sending e-mail), with faxing available as an option. HP says that the P3005 is already shipping, the M3027 MFP will ship on November 27, the CM1015 MFP and CM1017 MFP will ship in December, and the other models will ship on November 1.
