HP has launched three new printers aimed at the business market which use a new feature to work with computers without traditional setup utilities.Dubbed Smart Install, the new system uses printer drivers stored in the device’s memory so that all that is needed is to connect a USB cable and the printer is ready to go.“Our customers demand easy printing and we’re giving it to them – no clumsy CD-ROMs to install, no drivers to download,” said Ron Coughlin, senior vice president, LaserJet and Enterprise Solutions, Imaging and Printing Group at HP. “HP Smart Install offers the future of printing, today.”The first devices to have the Smart Install system are the HP LaserJet Pro P1100 Printer series, the HP LaserJet Pro M1130/M1210 Multifunction Printer (MFP) series and the HP LaserJet Pro P1566/P1606dn Printer series.While Microsoft has been loading popular drivers onto the Windows operating system for years this is believed to be the first time printers have shipped with their own drivers rather than relying on an internet download or a driver CD ROM.
