A MIGHTY INKJET
Anyone who still thinks that inkjet printers don't belong in the office should take a look at the new DeskJet 890cse from Hewlett-Packard. The $450 printer cranks out up to nine pages a minute in black and white (four pages at its best quality setting), and up to two full-color pages a minute. Although HP's claim of ''photo quality'' output for the 890 is a bit of a stretch, the printer does turn out vibrant color graphics and near-laser-quality text. Overcoming a long-standing deficiency of HP inkjets, the 890 comes with full support for Windows NT, as well as for 3.1 and DOS. But unlike the older 870 series, which remains available, the 890 does not work with Macs.
