Is there any driver for this printer? Or it doesnt support mac?? Then I have to buy another printer?
Ok I just checked the Dell site to see if they have the drivers for your printer....sad to say that from what I found looks like your printer is not Mac friendly.
Unless I have mistaken, then yes you do need a new printer. Suggestion, before you go and get a new one make sure you have ALL of the specs ot your system on hand, head out to where it is you are planning to get a new printer and tell them that you have a Mac and that you need a printer that works on the Mac, make sure you especify what you need the printer for! If for some reason the salesperson looks like this ask for some one who is more knowledgable in printers and various OSs.....if no dice there, then contact the product Co. i.e. Dell and ask what printers they offer that are Mac friendly. then go out and get it!
If I get the apple airport extreme base station, will the usb printer function work with the router? Or the router need a mac compatible printer too??
Dig deeper !
You need to look more closely at your printer. Why ? Because Dell does not "make" printers! They have them made by other mfgrs (most likely Lexmark or Epson) and slap their name badge on the casing & boxen.......
If it is an Epson underneath, OS X already has built-in drivers for almost every model they make, if not, you can download the opensource ones called GimpPrint at www.sourceforge.net
If it is a lexmark, chunk it & start over ! (or sell it to some silly windblows user )
...ahhhhhhhhh yeah, at first I was wondering since when did Dell make printers, then I realised that since I don't do TV might have been new! and even on the Dell site, not enough printers.....OK my bad, sorry hidehide
Is it a Canon?
I had a call from friends to help get their Dell 944 printer working with their new MBP. I looked through the websites of all the printer companies I could find, and the only ones I saw with the control panel on the top right side were Canon.
