While the CM1312 was cheap, the Color LaserJet CP1215 is cheaper, coming in at just US$249. That means if you load it up with three US$64 inks cartridges and a US$70 ink cartridge, the ink is worth more than the printer.
Perhaps that's why HP claims that 90 percent of printing costs occur after the printer itself is purchased.
The CP1215 has a claimed print speed of 12ppm (pages per minute) for black and white and 8ppm for colour with a printer ink yield of 750 pages for both black and white and colour.
The CM1312 is available now.
The colour LaserJet CP1515n printer is very similar to its smaller cousin, the CP1215 — but costs US$299. For a slightly higher price, it looks like the CP1215 features better print quality, although HP's specs sheets were thin on resolution figures.
The CP1515 also comes as a CP1515ni variant, which features a memory card and USB slot, which comes in at US$329.
The CM1515 is available now.
The colour LaserJet CP6015 kicks off the more serious business printers. Expect to pay between US$3,900 and US$6,000 for any of the CP6015 printer range.
Inks are also considerably more expensive in this range at US$112 for a black colour drum and US$315 for a colour ink drum. Black ink cartridges come in at US$303 while colour cartridges come in at US$303.
The HP printer range can print at 1,200 by 600 dpi with a claimed speed of 41ppm black and white.
The CP6015 range also features network support and a large paper capacity of 2,100 sheets. The CP6015 printers are available now.
