Various types of inkjet and laser printers are compatible with Toshiba laptop computers. Color inkjet printers are cost effective because they can print quality documents and use small drops of ink. Laser printers are a good choice if you only want to print black and white text documents. Both types of printers have a USB port that can be used to connect a Toshiba laptop computer.
When you're searching for a printer, you will have to decide if you want an inkjet or laser model, and either a stand-alone or all-in-one printer.

The printers use four toner cartridges, which includes the colors cyan, magenta and yellow to produce color prints and a black ink cartridge for black prints. Inkjet printers are compatible with Toshiba laptop computers and prints various types of text documents, photos and graphical items such as greeting cards.

Laser printers are best for printing only text documents and you can expect to pay $130 or more for the printers. They are very fast and can print top-quality black and white text. Laser printers that do print in color, cannot produce high-quality prints from glossy photo stock, because they use powder ink. The printers form images by transferring the toner to paper, which passes over an electrically charged drum and works much like plain paper copiers. Laser printers can print 10 to 20 pages per minute. They are also compatible with Toshiba laptop computers.
Printers that are designed to print text documents and photos are considered stand-alone printers. Most models can print almost anything up to 8-1/2 x 11 inches or larger. You can use various sizes of paper to create items such as business cards, greeting cards and banners. Stand-alone printers usually have a USB port that easily connects to a USB port on a Toshiba laptop computer.
Besides having printing capabilities, all-in-one printers have multiple features that you use. These types of printers are capable of scanning, copying and faxing documents. The printers are easy to operate and many of the features are accessible with the push one button. All-in-one printers are more expensive than basic printers, but cost less than buying a copier, scanner and fax separately. All-in-one computers are also compatible with Toshiba laptop computers and many of them are able to print via a wired or wireless network connection.
