Epson seems to feel adding some style to its new Artisan all-in-one inkjets will convince you to lay down cash to make one part of your home office. The new Artisan 800 and Artisan 700 are priced around $300 and $200, respectively.
The Artisan 800 and 700, both available in September, do look nice with their stylish piano black finishes. What is really interesting though is the mix of features. This is particularly true of the 800, which includes both Wi-Fi and faxing capabilities, in addition to being able to print, copy and scan at 4800 dpi resolution (48-bit color). It includes as well an automatic document feeder, 7.8-inch touch control panel and 3.5-inch LCD panel for viewing loaded photos from compatible memory cards.
