Print wirelessly with $79.99 Lexmark all-in-one

Print, scan, and copy with Lexmark's Wi-Fi-equipped X4580. Circuit City has it on sale for $80 shipped.

Here's your chance to score a Wi-Fi all-in-one for just $80 shipped. Circuity City

Regular readers know I have a thing for wireless printers, like the $99 Wi-Fi laser I posted last month. Here's a more versatile model that costs even less: The Lexmark X4580 printer/copier/scanner, which Circuit City has on sale for $79.99 shipped (plus sales tax in most states).

Designed with home offices and small businesses in mind, the X4580 is a color inkjet that can churn out 26 pages per minute (black). It scans in 48-bit color and comes with OCR software. And it makes one-touch copies. There's no sheet feeder--it's a flatbed model--and there's no LCD for previewing photos before printing. But it does offer 802.11g for easy wireless printing, and it's compatible with Windows and Mac machines.

Curiously, this model seems to be exclusive to Circuit City--it's not even listed on Lexmark's site. However, ignore the former's claims that the ink is exclusive as well: I found Lexmark's No. 2 and No. 3 cartridges (color and black, respectively) at countless online stores.

CNET hasn't reviewed this model, but 96 Circuit City buyers rated it 4 stars out of 5. If you want to see it in action, check out this pleasingly narrated promotional video.
