"certified" means the product has been tested by microsoft and you can get drivers via windows update. "ready" means they have drivers for vista but you'll need to download them from the manufacturer and they may not be whql certified. either one is fine as long as you get your drivers from windows update or the manufacturer's site.
We may need to purchase a replacement printer for our much-loved HP LaserJet 6L. I'm trying to come up to speed on LaserJets as fast as possible (I know more about color photo inkjets).
What do "Vista Ready" and"Certified for Vista" mean and what are the implications for choosing a small-office printer if one is on Windows XP but may, if something happens to the computer like a total crash/meltdown, end up on Vista with the next computer?
Thanks in advance for you clarification on this matter.
