The HP LaserJet 4600 is a 17 page-per-minute color printer—no matter if you are printing in black and white or vivid, laser quality color, the speed stays the same. Hewlett-Packard designed the LaserJet 4600 for small workgroups or offices that produce heavy document traffic. The monthly duty max is rated at 85,000 pages. The standard bypass tray can accommodate 100 sheets of paper. The bypass tray can be very helpful when printing on specialty papers such as labels or transparencies. It enables you to input different media types without having to unload the standard paper drawers.
Memory on the HP 4600 is standard at 96 MB RAM and upgradable to 416 MB RAM. This means that the LaserJet 4600 can handle complex print jobs with ease. Print quality is outstanding; the 600x600 dpi resolution produces crisp lines and eye-catching images/graphics. Four toner cartridges are needed for the HP 4600; the cyan (C9721A), magenta (C9723A), and yellow (C9722A) have an estimated page yield of 8,000 with 5 percent coverage. The black toner (C9720A) has a 9,000-page estimated yield with 5 percent coverage. These are each available in the genuine HP brand or premium Precision compatible
