a laser printer which works with new ipad?

by JillH / May 4, 2012 12:45 AM PDT

Hi, I am a teacher and I print between 50 and 200 copies per day.
I'd like to stop using my laptop in the classroom and my aim is to have all my documents on the cloud and print them via my ipad.
Today I looked at inkjet printers but with the volumes I print I would prefer a laser printer.
The guy in the shop didn't know anything about laser printers which would work with air print.

Could someone please recommend one?
I am in Spain and not all models are available here so any and all ideas very gratefully received!

Many thanks,

Hi Bob,
I am not upset with mine at all. I love it. I had an iPad 1 which my elderly mum is now using for her email and I have upgraded to the new one.

I have looked at the HP site several times but I can never decide which would be best for me which I why I was looking for some recommendations from people.
Going cable free would be good for my classroom as I worry about the kids tripping over them!

Many thanks,
I now have a starting point which is the HP laserjet pro M1212 MFP.

Now I am trying to see if there is anything which doesn't have the fax which I don't need and which has a slightly smaller footprint.

Checking the HP.com internet site and searching for compatible printers that may work with the iPad. I can't specifically mention which model, but that might be helpful. Unfortunately, most in-store reps won't know. Let us know what you find and if you find a solution.

Those are the ones that work with the iPad natively

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
