What you get is the HP LaserJet 6P printer, delivering outstanding value for individual or shared use from the market leader in laser printing for the office.

The 8-page-per-minute engine and fast processor get performance off to a great start. With the instant-on fuser that eliminates warm-up time, you get a quick 19-second first page out speed. Printing efficiency is further increased with 2 Megabytes (3 Mb memory for the LaserJet 6MP) of memory effectively doubled with HP Memory Enhancement technology (MEt), and two parallel ports (and LocalTalk for the LaserJet 6MP) for seamless sharing.
