Round Rock, Texas - The Dell/Lexmark partnership produced its first fruit today with Dell's introduction of four printers.
Dell and Lexmark inked a deal last September that initially had Dell selling Lexmark branded printers, but with the intention of the printer maker co-developing a printer line with Dell that would carry that brand name. Today's product roll out contains one inkjet-based all-in-one model and three laser printers. The all in one and entry model laser devices are targeted at the consumer, while the remaining two laser printers are for the enterprise market.
Dell reported the Dell Personal All-in-One A940 is now available with a $139 suggested retail price. It features copier, scanner, inkjet printing and faxing capabilities with 17 pages per minute text print speed and 12ppm color printing. The entry-level laser printer starts with the Dell Personal Laser Printer P1500. It carries a $289 suggested retail price with 19ppm print speed and 1200dpi resolution.
The Dell Workgroup laser line contains the S2500 and S2500n models. These has respective suggested prices of $499 and $839.
Dell also unveiled a line of branded inkjet and laser toner cartridges to equip its new printers.
