Workgroups with a real hunger for printing and a keen eye on costs should pay attention as HP claims to have reinvented the laser printer. Redesigned from the inside out, the new Color LaserJet Enterprise M553 series promises to be smaller, faster and cheaper to run than any other laser in this market sector.

Size-wise it's a winner as the M553dn on review weighs in at only 27.5kgs. This bright white cuboid looks more modern that previous LaserJets and, for a 38ppm printer, is noticeably smaller than the competition so requires less desktop real estate.

There's a lot more going on inside with HP's new cartridges incorporating its JetIntelligence technology and ColorSphere 3 toner. These are designed to drop running costs and produce superior output quality while the smaller moving parts in the cartridges make way for more toner.

The printer's control panel may be small but it's very easy to use
