Chapter 47. Selecting and Installing a Printer, Scanner, or Digital Camera

One of the basic peripherals for a PC used to be a difficult installation task for many users, but it is now a fairly simple procedure. Desktop printers have been around as long as PCs and still connect to PCs pretty much the same as they did back in 1981.

In the past few years, many PC users have had the opportunity to dabble with digital imagery largely because of the availability of better quality and less expensive digital scanners and digital cameras. Scanners have never been less expensive, more available, or easier to set up and use. And digital cameras are slowly approaching the quality of film cameras while inching toward the price range considered affordable by most PC users.
