Print, fax, copy, and scan for $59.99 shipped
Buy.com is offering a $50 rebate, plus free shipping, on the Lexmark X8350 multifunction printer.
All-in-one printers are insanely handy to have around. Consider: you can make copies--color copies--without having to run out to Kinko's. You can send faxes on those rare occasions when e-mail won't do. You can scan documents for electronic storage. Oh, and you can print.
The specs look pretty typical for an all-in-one, but with a few highlights. First, you can connect your digital camera or pop in its memory card, preview photos on the 2.7-inch color LCD, then crank out borderless prints in a variety of sizes. Second, you can scan documents straight to a USB flash drive; for some reason I find that really cool.
Unfortunately, the X8350 lacks an Ethernet jack, so you can't easily use it as a network printer, and it's up to you to supply the USB cable. But with a final price of just $60, you can afford that extra $5. The rebate deal is good through January 30, 2008.
