HP Photosmart C4780

3. HP Photosmart C4780 (previously #2) – The C4780 could be a great companion for any student.  It’s wireless, compact and good-looking; it is also functional and relatively cheap.  Yes, the print speeds were slower than advertised and the text could have been sharper but the fact that C4780 will keep printing even after a cartridge expires is a huge plus for any student on a deadline. HP Photosmart C4780 review
