IBM offers fastest laser printer Infoprint 4100

IBM (International Business Machines Corp.) has announced plans to step up their efforts to gain a stronghold in the business publishing. The tech giant has just launched a product, which it claims is the faster laser printer mechanism in the world. If we talk into statistics, the printer system is fast enough to print out the entire Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” in less than a minute.

The IBM Infoprint 4100 starts at around USD 500,000 and the top of the line model costs around a cool million dollars. The official speed is pegged around 330 pages a minute and it makes it the fastest toner based printer around. The company says that only a couple of inkjet-based printers are faster than this mechanism.

IBM had initially spun off its desktop printer business, Lexmark International Inc. (Research), in 1991. However, they have been in this business line since the last 30 years. Robert Cooper, director of product printing said in a statement: “This 4100 series has been a very successful product.” He added that the printer “provides more throughputs in less amount of time, and that means to them a lower cost of production.”
