This printer came for free at the Apple store when I bought my MacBook (came with everything you could need photopaper, a color ink cartridge, black ink cartridge, wire to connect to my mac). It's very light so it was pretty easy to carry it around the mall and back to my house. When I got home it took about 3 minutes to setup. I just plugged it in and then connected the wire to my computer and ta-da! it was working! I immediately tried out all the features. It could obviously print but I was also excited when I saw the quality of the pictures on the photopaper (almost like it was professionally developed), it's also got a scanner and a copying feature which is going to be very helpful when the semester starts again. Its LSD screen for the menu and operations was also a really good bonus.
