The wide selection of multifunctional devices on the market makes choosing the right one dif-ficult. Here's one solution: the Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet Pro 1170C all-in-one device ($799), which offers most of the document processing abilities businesses require.
The 1170C boasts high-quality printing, copying and scanning capabilities. Printer output is a solid 600 x 600 dpi resolution, with up to 9 pages per minute (ppm) for black text and 5 ppm for color. Because the 1170C can print on letter- and legal-sized paper, transparencies, envelopes and labels, it's flexible enough for most homebased business tasks. I was impressed with the 1170C's full range of reduction and enlargement features, including auto enlarge and super-zoom, and the poster, clone and mirror copy modes. The 1170C's flatbed scanner can be used to scan letter- and legal-sized documents, books and magazines into Windows applications.
