The Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X Snow Leopard compatible all-in-one offers borderless printing for brochures, flyers and other documents, built-in Ethernet and wireless networking options, and fast print, copy, scan and fax speeds.
In addition, it produces fast-drying documents that resist fading when using papers with the ColorLok logo. With the optional HP 901XL Black Officejet Inkjet Cartridge – the highest-yielding supply offering among current in-class inkjets in the market – small businesses can now print up to three times more black pages for greater savings.
As part of the HP Eco Solutions program, the ENERGY STAR qualified HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One series conserves resources with HP Smart Web Printing. The HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One and HP Officejet 4500 Wireless All-in-One are expected to be available for purchase worldwide next month.
Delivering marketing tools to small businesses worldwide

Customers in Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom can now print these templates on an HP color printer instead of using a copy shop.
