Lexmark Genesis multifunction inkjet printer (preview)

The Lexmark Genesis printer uses a camera to scan documents and photos instantly

The Lexmark Genesis inkjet printer is a high-end multifunction device aimed at homes and home offices. Its standout feature is an integrated camera CMOS sensor that captures 10-megapixel images, for instant scanning of documents and photos with good detail levels.

The Lexmark Genesis printer has a design that's interesting to say the least. It looks like it should be pressing shirts in a laundromat rather than scanning and printing in an office, but the upright design does make it stand out from the competition. We were initially confused as to how documents would stay in the scanning tray, but a small lip allows you to securely place them during scanning.

A 4.3in LCD screen offers access to a small range of applications and extra features — you can print off directions to the nearest ink supplier, for example. 802.11n Wi-Fi lets you connect the printer to a wireless network, and a rated output of up to 30 colour and 33 monochrome pages means the Genesis should be as fast as its competitors like the Canon PIXMA MG8150 and HP Photosmart eStation All-in-One.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
