For the small business or home office, the Dell All-in-One 948 is the ideal way to boost productivity,
save on space and keep costs down.
Set up is simple – it’s plug and play, with pre-installed drivers on all new Dell PCs and notebooks. The integrated
fax, scanner, printer and copier fits easily into any office and allows you to save space and money: forget all
those paper files - now you can scan your documents and store them digitally.
Need to get information to or from a customer fast? Simply use the standalone fax feature to send or receive
your documents quickly and efficiently. Alternatively you could scan your paper documents or photos and email
directly from your PC. You can also eliminate repetitive, time-consuming and everyday tasks such as the retyping
of standard documents: simply scan the page and let the included Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software
turn it into editable text.
You can produce high quality brochures, flyers and business literature thanks to the professional image
quality printing. At up to 28 pages a minute mono and 25 pages a minute colour, it’s quick at the task too.
You can even print photos directly from your camera or memory cards, thanks to the PictBridge connectivity
or memory card slots and edit images with the included software. You need never worry about running out of
ink because when it’s getting low the 948 tells you, and new cartridges can be ordered easily, direct from the
Dell website.
