With its PageWide technology this inkjet-powered MFP is blindingly quick, cheaper to run than a laser, and more reliable.

A Samsung-derived engine turns this A3 LaserJet into a fast and very capable multifunction printer/copier with lots of new security features to keep would-be printer-hackers at bay.
<p> The market for high-end workstations to run CAD/CAM and other graphically demanding applications has long been dominated by the likes of Sun, HP and Dell. Lenovo, however, is hoping to get a look in with its new <a href="http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/gbweb/LenovoPortal/en_GB/catalog.workflow:expandcategory?current-catalog-id=FD6DB49790C7411D933567FC361231FB¤t-category-id=583E12B6FA4F42429095CAF88F3CD6D9&tab=1#tab-container-7">ThinkStation S20</a>, which can be fitted with Intel quad-core processors based on the latest 45nm <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/components/0,1000001694,39539047,00.htm">Nehalem</a> technology. </p>
This is a well-built workstation with quad-core power to spare, although it could do with more storage options.
The latest addition to the HP Compaq family of thin clients, the t5720 is the first to deploy an AMD processor. Not that the CPU is anything particularly fancy -- just an <a href="http://www.amd.com/us-en/ConnectivitySolutions/ProductInformation/0,,50_2330_9863_10837,00.html">AMD Geode NX 1500</a>, which majors on power saving (6 Watts) rather than performance. Still, the Geode NX 1500 is pretty nifty compared to competing thin client silicon, and its 1.0GHz clock speed puts the t5720 firmly at the top of the range in terms of performance.
The AMD-based t5720 is a welcome addition to HP Compaq's family of thin clients, but documentation needs to be improved.
For maximum security and performance ClearCube's C/Port technology matches what you’ll get from a similar desktop PC. For maximum flexibility, however, the thin-client I/Port solution is a better option, especially when teamed with virtualisation software to host multiple users per PC blade.
