The CM1312nfi is one of two configurations of HP's CM1312 Printer series, with some improvements to justify the s CM1312 Printer series, with some improvements to justify the $300 price jump over the base model.00 price jump over the base model.

Automatic document feeder, small size, low initial outlay, good quality documents
