OKI C5300 colour laser printer

OKI’s $3575 colour laser printer is perfect for the SME market and would suit businesses who need high-quality, large-volume colour printouts. It features 10/100 network connectivity with an internal Web server, yet can be connected to a stand-alone PC via parallel or USB interfaces.

Its performance is very good and in our tests we found it was able to pump out 10 pages per minute in normal quality mode. Our test document was a 92-page reviewers guide (Word document) with many graphics and tables in addition to text.

The C5300 weighs 25kg and features four easy-to-install individual toner cartridges, which have a stated service life of 5000 A4 pages (at 5 per cent density), along with a separate drum unit, which is said to have a life of around 22,000 pages. Costs are $218.90 for the cyan, magenta and yellow toners, $93.50 for the black toner and $258 for the drum unit. For support, a standard one-year return to base warranty is provided.

Paper handling is by way of a standard 300-sheet input tray and the exit tray will accommodate 250 sheets. Options for duplexing and higher capacity paper trays are offered.

The unit’s standard measurements are 40x55x34cm (WxDxH).

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
