Color laser printers that are cheaper also been showing off 600×600 dpi optical resolution, which is suitable for most business needs.

Try to make a comparison table specification of a laser printer you want to buy. Do not forget to include also the unit price and the price of the printer toner. This is necessary so that you know what you can get from a particular brand and model, and whether it will meet your printing needs now and also in the future. No laser printers are made identical, so you really have to be very careful in making comparisons specifications and price.
