Known for their affordable inkjet printers, what does Brother have to offer at the PC Show?

The Brother MFC-J470DW has print, copy, scan and fax capabilities. Print speed is up to 12 pages per minute (PPM) for mono documents and 10ppm for color documents. It goes for $218 and comes with a free $20 shopping voucher.
