Dell adds printers and monitors

Dell has added a workgroup printer and two personal printers to its printer lineup, along with two flat-panel monitors.

Dell has unveiled a workgroup printer and two personal printers, along with two flat-panel monitors.

The Dell Workgroup Laser Printer M5200n, the Dell Personal Inkjet Printer J740, and the Dell Personal All-In-One Printer A920 are all available in North America, and will become available in other parts of the world later this year.

Business customers will be able to print up to 35 pages per minute on the $999 M5200n printer, which comes with a web-based monitoring tool for administrators to keep track of toner and paper levels in the networked printer.

The personal printers also come with software that keeps users up to date on their printer's ink level with each print job. The J740 costs $99, and can print up to 18 pages per minute of standard text. The A920 comes with a printer, scanner, and copier for $89.

US customers who buy a new Dell printer can have their old printers picked up by Dell for recycling.

Dell entered the printer market in March with the release of four models. Lexmark International manufactures the printers for Dell under an agreement reached last September.

Dell's latest flat-panel monitors  - the 17-inch UltraSharp 1703FP and the 19-inch 1901FP - cost $499 and $740 respectively, although the 1901FP will not be available until next month. The UltraSharp 1703FP is now available worldwide.
