    Disposing of Printers

    Would a standard model HP Deskjet from 2000/2001 (930c) likely to contain some sort of persistent memory or hdd that would store copies of documents printed

    Even the business oriented lasers only use RAM, so I doubt it.

    There are some (or used to be, I haven't looked recently) that had hard drives too. But they were very much high end, and with the advent of far greater PC power and network speeds I haven't noticed any for ages. And I've not noticed that capability even on any business networked inkjets.

    As for the 930, no it certainly doesn't. It's a pretty dumb machine, with all the work being done by the PC in the driver.

    It would certainly be a few years since I've seen one either ... but then, I haven't been looking.

    I thought that might be the case - in fact my post originally said "high end lasers" but I changed it for exactly that reason

    We were a low budget business

    There were even high end printers that had what amounted to a whole specialised PC, let alone hard drives. It was effectively a dedicated postscript rasterising engine .... but they was aimed at a very specialised market. Epson did this on some of their high-end inkjets, but they were large format machines aimed at doing professional standard in-house proofs instead of Chromalins, etc.

    But as I said, a very specialised (and pretty expensive) end of the market.
