HP ePrint technology makes it easy to print from a variety of devices, while AirPrint makes printing from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch a breeze.

The touch screen provides access to a variety of business apps and lets you print from the web. A handy USB port makes printing from a USB flash drive easy, too.

Reduce your environmental impact
HP Auto-On/Auto-Off technology turns your printer on when you need it, and off when you don't, while Instant-On Technology saves time, delivering your first page in no time once the printer turns on. Toner cartridges can also be recycled responsibly by returning them to HP's Planet partners service for free.
