A guide to Apple printers

Although Apple themselves don't currently make printers, there are still a lot of printers designed for Apple products.

The HP Photosmart All-in-one printer is a great budget entry, offering professional quality printing, high efficiency to reduce costs and cut down on how often you have to change the ink and HP's 'Touchsmart' interface, allowing you to frame, print, copy and scan an image or document directly from the printer and without the need for a computer. It's currently available for £64.95 from store.apple.com.

The HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-one is a good mid range printer with a lot of features. As well as all of the functions offered by the standard Photosmart All-in-one, it also provides wireless printing with a simple setup process, offers automatic two-sided printing to save on paper, and allows you to print directly from iPhone's and iPad's. Coming in at a significantly pricier £174.95 on store.apple.com it's only really necessary if you want total connectivity between all of your Apple compatible devices, but what it does it does well.

The HP Envy 100 e-All-in-One meanwhile is a top of the line printer, offering all the features of the Photosmart Premium, but it also has a small sleek build, looking attractive and stylish compared to most other printers. Additionally it features a high resolution touch screen interface, is PVC free thereby reducing its impact on the environment, and prints almost silently. Priced at £254.95 from store.apple.com and Apple stores, this is about as premium as Apple printers come, but if you do a lot of printing, and particularly if your printer shares a room with your TV or other things that could be interrupted by the noise it makes, then you won't regret it.
