HP Photosmart 7510

The HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One is reasonably priced at $149.99 and offers families creative options that no other product in its class can top as of this writing. Other features include: print speeds of up to 13.5 ppm in black and 9 ppm in color, a 4.33-inch touchscreen, 125-sheet input tray with 20-sheet dedicated photo tray and 25-sheet ADF.

Dell V725w

The Dell V725w is a 4-in-1 device with ISO print speeds up to 10 ppm, a print resolution up to 4800 x1200 dpi, 50-page ADF, 2.4-inch color LCD, wireless connectivity and more. In other words, a solid choice for the more technical student who is more interested in getting things done than creative options.

Samsung ML-2165w

The ultra compact Samsung ML-2165w aims to bring small office, home office customers quality laser prints in a more economical offering thanks to the new 1500-page all-in-one toner cartridges and ECO features reducing toner and paper usage automatically.  This is for the student who only needs/wants to print black and white text documents fast and often.

Canon Pixma MG8220

The flagship Pixma MG8220 Wireless Photo All-in-One offers many of the same features we first saw on the Pixma MG8120: identical print speeds and print resolution, Intelligent Touch system with 3.5-inch LCD, two-way paper feeding, automatic duplexing and built-in wireless connectivity as well as a new CD/DVD/Blu-ray tray and the Pixma Cloud Link feature.  Perhaps the best printer on this list as far as photo quality goes, but a little light on mobile features and applications compared to the Kodak and HP models.
