    I recently heard about a new canon digital camera with a built in printer, and that got me wondering. With apple being so inovative, do you think theyd ever build a printer into a macbook pr MBP?

    i've always thought about how cool it would be to load paper in the top of my screen, and have it print out of the bottom. but imagine how difficult it would be to change the ink

    I don't think this makes a whole lot of sense for most laptop users. That's a lot of added bulk and weight just so you have the option of printing in your lap (which doesn't really appeal to me anyway).

    There is such a thing as portable printers, though. You can get one that runs on batteries and fits nicely in a laptop bag.

    I sometimes wish my cell phone was also a stapler.

    I remember about 7 years ago, when I used to work at CompUSA, we sold this amazingly tiny printer by Canon. It was seriously no larger than the old Powerbook batteries at the time.
