Group Effort

For a fast and reliable workgroup printer, check out Dell's monochrome Laser Printer 1700n. It can lower your total cost of printing, thanks to its high-capacity toner cartridge and lower cost of consumables. And with print speeds of as much as 25 ppm, the less-than-$300 1700n is fast enough for a workgroup, yet affordable enough for a home office. It offers 1200 x 1200 dpi maximum resolution, 16MB memory, and is compatible with Windows 98SE and Linux 7.2 and higher. USB, parallel and Ethernet cords aren't included.

Room to Grow

Business growth can throw data storage for a loop. Fortunately, Hewlett-Packard offers a flexible network-attached storage (NAS) solution-the HP StorageWorks NAS 2000s. The NAS 2000s starts with an Intel Xeon 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 processor (expandable to two), 1GB memory (expandable to 4GB), two 36.4GB Ultra320 10K 1-inch hard drives, and a 8x24 DVD-ROM. Still need more room? Expand it to a whopping 36 terabytes. Of course, compatibility can't be overlooked. The NAS 2000s can host two Microsoft Exchange Servers and up to 1,500 Exchange mailboxes, plus a web GUI for remote management.
