Hewlett-Packard has announced a new addition to its Vectra PC line and two models to its LaserJet printer line.
HP's latest addition to its desktop line, the Vectra VL, is aimed at corporate customers who want to maximise the use of their PC, as well as lowering their total cost of ownership, said Achim Kuttler, marketing manager for Vectras, in France.
The VL can be configured with either Intel's Pentium II 350MHz, 400MHz or 450MHz processors and 440BX AGPset with 100MHz front-side bus. There is a host of RAM and storage options.
HP also introduced two LaserJet printers, the 1100 and the 1100A. Both printers will be released worldwide at the end of October, a spokesman for HP said.
The 1100, which replaces the 6L printer, is aimed at customers who work in a corporate environment, small offices or home offices. The company claims the 1100 has a print speed 33 per cent faster than its predecessor, as well as twice the memory. It prints at a speed of eight pages per minute (ppm), requires no warm-up time, offers a resolution of 600 dots per inch (dpi), and features 2MB of standard memory, and JetPath technology.
The other addition, the 1100A, is for corporate customers. It has software that can reduce and enlarge documents from 25 per cent to 400 per cent and collate one to 99 copies, automatic links for scanning documents to e-mail, and PC fax applications.
