HP Deskjet 5850 Wireless Printer
If you love something, set it free.
$99.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling
Wirelessness is where it’s at. That’s why dogs strain at their leashes; it’s why sailing ships creak in protest against their moorings; it’s why babies chew free from their umbilical cords. All the world over, so easy to see—people and personal computer accessories everywhere just got to be free.

And yet you sit in your drab little “home office” with your printer on a tether like somebody’s sad toddler at the mall. What, is the wireless alternative too radical for your button-down brain in its brain box for boxed-in brains? Is it?

This woot is here to freak you out, brother or sister! The wireless printer is Pinocchio as a real boy! It’s a chain gang prisoner liberated from his bonds! Except that it still has to labor for you.

And labor it will: printing at up to 4,800 optimized dpi, the little bugger handles a wide variety of media types and sizes. With an optional paper tray it can accommodate 400 sheets, spitting them out at up to 21 ppm (on its fastest, lowest-quality setting).

Now it’s your turn to be the bewilderer of squares! Install this printer in some convenient corner, and print files from the sofa, from the dining room table, from the loo, or whencever you do your laptoppin’. Your Luddite roommates will fuh-reek! “Great day in the morning,” they’ll beller. “Did you install MSPoltergeist?”

Thank You GC…you know what I mean…

Out of all of consumer printers HP are the best…Have had several with no problems unlike an Epson printer i once had

nice printer, too bad i already got a photosmart 8450


now if only I’d bought the HP camera and the HP paper… ah well…

hey… that’s the first time I’ve made the first page - and I even said something other than xiosdafopasdygoi or ‘first page!’ heh.

edit #2:

wow…it’s around $50 less than anywhere else on the web I saw… now if ONLY I needed a printer… it’s a good deal if you need one!
