All (Literally) In One!
The HP Photosmart C8188 is the mother of all MFDs (or All-in-ones, as HP calls them), and comes at a price of $400 (little over Rs 16,000), which is a small price to pay for what it’s capable of. It”ll take photos from your camera’s flash memory and print them in six-colour, smudge- and water-resistant glory, archive them to a CD or DVD using the built in LightScribe DVD-Writer, and etch them on to LightScribe discs. It”ll also scan documents, images and even negatives at 4800 x 4800 dpi, and connect to just about anything, using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The new touchscreen interface (to be seen on many new printers and MFDs from HP) is ridiculously easy to use, and it took just over a
minute for us to go from picture-on-memory-card to glossy-print-in-hand.
