New Compaq networking line for SMEs

Compaq has launched a new range of Fast Ethernet Hubs aimed at the SME (small and medium enterprise) market.

The hubs give businesses faster network access "right out of the box" Compaq says. Used with Compaq desktops, the company claims the hubs will provide for faster access to business critical applications.

The product line allows for multi-user application access, shared resource pooling of hardware such as printers, and high-speed file sharing. Scalability is promoted within the range of hubs, offering a "solid growth path" for "meeting the office connectivity challenges of an evolving business".

The hubs are stackable to six high and can grow to meet the needs of up to 96 desktop and server connections. In addition, 192 users can be accommodated with two stacks of Class II repeaters connected together.

Pricing starts at $520 for an eight-port Fast Ethernet Hub, and up to $1399 for a 16-port Dual Speed Hub.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.
