HP has today launched the LaserJet Pro M15w, the successor to the M12w we first saw in 2016. With dimensions of 346 x 348 x 280mm and weighing 3.8kg, the diminutive M15w is said to be the smallest mono laser printer in its class.

Capable of a 19 page-per-minute (ppm) print speed and a top print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi, the printer is also equipped with a 150-sheet paper input tray and a 100-sheet output tray. Designed to be a personal printer, it comes with a USB 2.0 port and has built-in support for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. It supports Wi-Fi Direct too (so you don’t really need a wireless access point), as well as mobile printing, and plays nice with protocols and services such as Apple AirPrint, Mopria, and Google Cloud Print. While the printer doesn't have a built-in scanner, you can scan from your smartphone and print it through the HP Smart mobile app.

The HP LaserJet Pro M15w has a sticker price of S$119, and comes bundled with a black toner cartridge capable of 500 prints (off-the-shelf replacement cartridges have a 1000-page yield). It will be available in stores starting August 1.

For those who need an all-in-one printer, HP is also making a LaserJet Pro M28w that sports additional scan and copy capabilities. Other than the extra flatbed scanner (1,200 dpi optical scan resolution), it shares the same features as the single-function M15w. And finally, if you value the AIO functions but don't need the wireless and mobile printing features, there's the USB-only LaserJet Pro M28a.

The LaserJet Pro M28w and M28a are priced at S$189 and S$169 respectively, and they too will go on sale in August.

The M28w AIO is basically the M15w with scan and copy functions.

The "infinity" scanner glass goes edge to edge so that it's easier to pick up the document after scanning.
