Sometimes smaller is better! For users who are short on space but require laser quality mono prints, the Dell B1160w mono laser printer could prove a lifesaver. But don't let the B1160w's compact size fool you because it'll still churn out 20 pages per minute at resolutions of up to 1200 dpi.

The Dell B1160w has USB and Wi-Fi connectivity but there's also the basic USB only version - the B1160.

Just be aware that it's not quite as compact as the images may lead you to believe because there's a drawbridge at the front that must be lowered when the paper is loaded into the machine (it'll hold up to 150 sheets).

Although offices could deploy the B1160w to each employee, we'd heed caution because the toner cartridges are only rated at 1,500 pages so you may find yourself continually replacing them. Also, the cost per page from larger workgroup machines will be significantly lower because the Dell B1160w is only designed for light use.
