Currently Windows is leading in the personal computers category and iMacs covering the all-in-ones. The top brands in the printer segment are all vying to grab the all-in-one market too. The wireless printers manufactured by them should be compatible with both these two operating systems.

Running on the latest Mac OS X operating system (Mountain Lion), all the iMacs have the specifically designed AirPrint application for printing wirelessly with ease. Easily configurable to be part of the same WiFi network with minimum number of steps, the AirPrint requires only a wireless router to start printing. All the latest printers from all the top brands provide support for the mobile printing from any of your compatible Apple devices such as iPad and iPhones.

For the non compatible legacy printers which does have the AirPrint feature, the iMacs have the Bonjour service. As Airprint is based on the standard printing protocols used in all the printers, using this service the iMac will create a virtual platform through which they can communicate with these printers.

The best of the wireless printers which support iMac should have a minimum of 600 dpi print resolution. Using both the inkjet or laser technology, these wireless printers are capable of printing both color or mono prints. Usually seen in the home office setup, these printers offer a high throughput in terms of print quality, ppm (pages per minute), low first time print for both color and black/white printouts. Being wireless means less to be worried about space and annoying cables around. It also means less waiting time for printouts.

Take a look at the best wireless printers for iMac computers which are competitively priced and also good looking.

  • The HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn is fast, low-priced, and has output quality good enough to let you print your own marketing materials.


  • This is a big printer for companies with big ideas. It's fast, flexible and delivers stunning prints.


  • Once past its slow startup, the Color LaserJet Enterprise M553x offers top-tier print quality at particularly high speeds. Just don't place your desk in the immediate vicinity, as the fan is just as effective at making noise as it is at cooling the machine.


  • - As a straight MFC, the Epson Workforce ET-4550 is perfectly capable, if not particularly speedy.
    - The side of each ink tank is translucent, so you can easily see exactly how much ink you have.
    - Coverage on those pages was very crisp, however.


  • The Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer costs a lot for a personal multifunction printer (MFP), but it comes with all the ink most users will ever need.


  • Based on Epson's new EcoTank ink system, this otherwise low-volume inkjet delivers the lowest CPPs we've seen from any consumer-grade or small-business printer.


  • This small and efficient laser all-in-one prints well and quickly, but the cost per page and limited paper handling render this an occasional-use model.


  • I really liked this compact, well-built little laser, but as an advocate of low-consumable costs I can’t really condone per-page toner costs this high on a $400+ printer. Other than that, the M277dw is one capable little laser printer.


  • A good fit as a personal multifunction printer or for light-duty, shared use in a small office, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw delivers high-quality text and graphics, fast speed, and mobile printing support.


  • The Brother MFC-J5270DW has very flexible paper handling facilities and both business and photo features making it a versatile device. We found some problems with the print quality in
    duplex copies and had some paper misfeeds. The default photo print mode is also surprisingly slow. These drop-offs can be worked around, though, and otherwise, this is a good business inkjet.


  • Let’s face it, there are a bunch of strong-performing business printers out there; choosing one isn’t easy. The good news is that as long as you keep your eye on the ink cost, most of them, including this MFC-J5720DW, should serve you well.


  • The Brother MFC-J5720DW inkjet multifunction printer delivers decent speed and output quality. More importantly, it offers a low running cost and has the ability to print at up to 11 by 17 inches.


  • There’s a lot to like about the HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw, from its smart looks to its versatile wireless connection and duplex print. We’d like to see a higher capacity paper tray – or an option for a second tray – but other than that, it’s a very good choice for anybody who needs quality black and colour laser print, without a high purchase cost.


  • The HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw color laser printer is a great fit for personal or light-duty shared use, with fast speed, high-quality output, network connectivity, and support for mobile printing.
