The printer maximum speed is largely dependent on certain qualities including the system specifications. Other determining factors include the complexity of the document and the software program. All the same, the average print speed for monochrome is up to 20 pages per minute (ppm) after the first page. When the page is in text and graphics in color, the print speed is up to 14 ppm after the first page.
The photo paper print with white borders is at the speed of 44 seconds after the first page. A similar borderless photo paper print comes at the rate of 49 seconds.
The standard resolution for printing text is 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi), 1200 x 1200 dpi at best. However, the maximum resolution is optimized at 4800 x 1200 dpi using the Photo REt technology. More so, this is the same resolution for color and black prints for printing on both plain paper and photo paper.
The versions include Microsoft Windows 2000, XP and Windows Vista. However, these come with specific requirements. For instance, the minimum RAM is 128 MB but a recommendation of 512 MB RAM for Windows Vista. In the same vein, the minimum hard disk space required is 250 MB. The minimum processor is an Intel Pentium II, Celeron while a compatible one is 233 MHz or higher. For Windows Vista, however, an 800 MHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor.
Comparatively, the minimum processors in an Apple Mac OS X v10.3.9 and later versions are G3, G5, and Intel Core. Whereas, minimum hard disk space should be 150 MB with a minimum RAM of 128 MB but recommended is 256 MB. For Macintosh, any internet browser will do.
