Canon Pixma iP100 Portable Printer
by Mark R
I do a lot of my computer work on the road from my laptop. When I need to print a document, I have to go through this frustrating process of saving the document on a thumb drive, and then transfer it to a desktop with a printer.
Wouldn’t it be easier to have a portable printer that could give me hard copies on the go? This is precisely why the Canon Pixma iP100 portable printer was invented.
The Canon Pixma iP100 can print up to 20 pages per minute on normal 8.5 x 11 inch paper. It’s hard to believe that something this small can print in color, but the Pixma iP100 can even do color at a high resolution of 9600 x 2400 dots per inch.
The iP100 also uses two black inks. The first is a pigment-based black ink that delivers sharp text, and the second is for photos. That’s right, the iP100 can print photo-lab quality prints of many sizes, and can even touch them up using Auto Image Fix technology.
As for power, the user can use a car’s cigarette lighter, or purchase an optional LK-62 Lithium Ion battery for about $90. As for the price of the portable printer itself, the Canon Pixma iP100 is available for about $249.99.
