Acer Chrome Book and Printing

One of my questions is this. If I were to buy an Acer Google Chrome Book, how would I print? Would it's operating system be compatible with drivers to make my HP printer print, or would there be a whole new type of printer I would have to buy?

Yes it should be fine with your printer... basically all your print drivers will be in the cloud regardless of what kind of Chromebook you have (Acer or any other brand)

Send a message via MSN to modder
I've seen links on the forum to articles explaining this but yes, printing will still work fine with your existing printers.

Does it mean it only works with HP Printers? What about the other brands? I suppose the printer will have to be wireless one, otherwise you can't connect it with your Chromebook, right?

I bought one of the 99 eprint Printers for HP. It works awesome. I can print at work via Cloud print stuff for my wife. (I am plugged in all the site for coupons and stuff)

It is a good printer and the photos are nice. It prints quick and just like all HP's seems well built for a printer. I was using a Lexmark before but had to have my wife turn on the desktop then login my account so I can print...which was a waste of time.
