Individuals looking to escape the daily commute and work from home may find the LaserJet Pro M1536dnf from printer supplies maker HP could be a useful addition to their office.

For those with only a small about of space to work with, the fact it includes scanning, copying and faxing capabilities in a single unit may be a benefit.

And anyone trying to reduce the clutter in their workspace by reducing their paper usage could take advantage of the automatic duplexing feature of the machine.

Reviewing the LaserJet Pro M1536dnf for CNet UK, Niall Magennis described it as "an accomplished laser multifunction model" that produces "sharp and defined" black text.

He was also impressed with the speed of the device for both printing and copying operations, noting that the HP model outperforms many of its rivals in this area.

Recently, it was stated by director of research at the Telework Association Peter Thomson that young people may be especially keen to work from home, as they are concerned about the impact their commute may be having on the environment.
