Take your best shot

While digital cameras offer you the convenience of viewing your photos instantly, ink jets and dye-sublimation printers give you sharp prints to keep in your wallet and share with friends. Here are some models to consider:

Acer FotoPrisa 300P

This compact dye-sub printer produces photos with glossy stock and rich colours. Its 4 x 6in maximum print size and dye-sub engine mean that it's good only for photos (whether full-size or tiled onto sheets of stickers); you can't use it to print a resume. However, its pass-through port could accommodate another printer. This model was difficult to install but simple to use afterward. At $499, the FotoPrisa is an affordable option if you don't need to print text-based documents. A pack of 50 sheets of paper with a 50-print ribbon costs an extra $40.

HP PhotoSmart P1100

The P1100 provides SmartMedia and CompactFlash slots so you can print photos without a PC. Its $999 price is mitigated by great speed and exquisite photos. This dye-sub's straightforward menus make it easy to use, too. An infrared port talks to laptops and IR-equipped cameras.

Sony Digital Photo Printer MS-300

The easy-to-use MS-300 delivers impressive postcard-sized prints and has bays for PC Cards and Sony's Memory Stick. You can also plug the MS-300 into a TV to view or capture images. The $1299 price doesn't include paper (a pack of 30 costs around $80), ink ribbon, or even a container for the paper.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
