Additionally, Pinnacle features 4-in-1 capability, a Web-connected1, easy-to-navigate 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen, and the world's lowest-cost black ink2.
"The introduction of Pinnacle builds upon the momentum and success Lexmark has garnered with its award-winning touch screen AIOs, providing yet another model that enables our customers to go way beyond printing," said Paul Rooke, Lexmark executive vice president and president of its Imaging Solutions Division.
