Slim Down

Visioneer's OneTouch 7300 USB 2.0 bus-powered flatbed scanner is a slim solution for thick stacks of paperwork. At 1.4 inches thick, the OneTouch 7300 is designed for mobility and simplicity, with a single cord and five buttons to scan, e-mail, copy, or perform OCR (optical character recognition) or a customized task. The sleek size still allows for a scanning surface of 8.5 by 11.69 inches and a hinged lid for scanning books, magazines and other odd-shaped materials. You might think this convenience comes at the expense of quality, but the OneTouch 7300 scans 48-bit color at 1200 dpi resolution.
