Hewlett Packard HP 2500CM color inkjet network printer
by Mike Ballard
Presents a very favorable review of the HP 2500CM ($1,450), a color
inkjet network printer from the Hewlett Packard Company of Palo
Alto, CA (650). Reports that with 20MB RAM (upgradable to 76MB) and
Adobe PostScript 3, it is a network-ready printer for Macintosh,
Windows, and DOS computers and is designed for immediate work group
connectivity with a built-in print server. Requires 50MB of hard
disk space for 11 x 17 printing, and graphic-intensive files may
require more disk space. Says that it requires the support and
assistance of a network administrator or knowledgeable person with
the ability to create, maintain, and authorize access to network
printers and print queues. Recommends it for mixed Macintosh/Windows
environments or for color and/or large format printing capability.
Rated five on a scale of one to five.
Includes one photo and a scorecard.
