Even though the company entered the desktop printer business a few years ago, Dell initially relied on Epson point-of-sale printer products, which it continues to sell. Now Dell is hoping its Thermal Receipt Printer T200 will oust its competition at the checkout counter.

The dual-color standalone box connects through serial, USB or powered USB ports. Retailing at $299, the printer is also available as part of a bundle that Dell is pitching to retailers. The bundle now includes the T200, a compatible stand, a 15-inch touch-screen monitor, a more compact keyboard and a magnetic-stripe credit card reader. It also includes a cash drawer, bar code scanner, Dell OptiPlex SX280 Ultra Small Form Factor desktop computer and the option to buy into Dell's retail services packages.
