HP unveils a new HP printer that has more storage capacity than a standard laptop
A new HP line of printers has enough storage capacity to hold almost 200 DVDs, and more than a DVD of the new Microsoft Office suite, according to HP’s new printer lineup announcement.
HP has added an additional 200 gigabytes of storage to its new printers, with each of the devices priced at $1,499.
HP’s printers come in two sizes: a 4,000-gigabyte model that costs $1 and a 4-gigsabyte model for $1.99.
The new printers are powered by HP’s next-generation HP Fusion Power PC and feature a 10.6-inch display, 10 gigabit Ethernet, and an AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card.
HP will sell its printers at select retailers, such as Staples and Home Depot.
HP says its new HP Fusion Pro is a better value for the company, since it has more memory and more storage.
HP is the first major PC maker to announce a printer lineup, and it’s an important step toward expanding its existing offerings in high-volume consumer markets, including laptops.
HP announced a new printer line in January and said it was building a 10,000 unit line to bring its desktop printer business to $5 billion in annual revenue by 2020.
HP previously announced a printer line called HP Fusion and has since expanded its product lineup, starting with the HP ProBook 5 7000 series.
