As a small or medium business owner every resource counts. You want to ensure you're getting the most out of your space and your technology. Dell's newest color printer offerings announced today are designed specifically with small and medium businesses in mind and let you say "no" to compromise once and for all.

It's been a busy 18 months for our Imaging business as we've more than doubled our product portfolio. In March we had the largest printer launch in Dell history (8 new monochrome multifunction laser printers) and followed it up with the introduction of new print solutions in May. Along the way we've received wonderful feedback on our printers from the likes of PC World, InformationWeek SMB and PrinterComparison.com. But back to the news at hand - today we're introducing eight new color printers, including the world's smallest color laser-class printer.

With this launch we're continuing the Dell tradition of providing customers with technology solutions that are not only powerful but increase their productivity and fit seamlessly into their workspaces.  So, what's so innovative about our new printers? Let's start with our new color LED offerings including a technology we call Dell Clear View LED.

With Dell Clear View LED print technology customers benefit from an ultra compact printer design and high resolution print quality perfect for producing professional-looking marketing collaterals in-house.  And what makes these petite solutions even more desirable is that they're virtually maintenance free-thanks to a drum and fuser unit designed to last for the expected life of the printer.  New models in this line up include the 1250c single function LED printer (the world's smallest), the 1350cnw network and Wi-Fi-enabled single function printer (also world's smallest) and come November, the 1355cn/cnw world's smallest 4-in-1 multifunction laser-class color network/Wi-Fi-enabled printer.

In addition to our first LED color printers, today we launched new color laser printers designed to deliver fast and professional-quality printing to medium businesses and workgroups, rounding out our printer family to guarantee high-performance and energy efficiency for organizations of all sizes worldwide. We also added automatic duplexing to one of our most popular models - the 3130cn.

Key features for each of today's printers can be found below and images are located in the Dell Image Bank. All in all, we continue to make huge investments in our Printing and Imaging product line. Printers will without a doubt be an integral part of how we move forward as a company. Be sure to keep an eye out on this space for more exciting Dell printer announcements...
