page printer

A printer that prints a page at a time. Laser, LED and solid ink printers are examples. The first page printers were huge, floor-standing devices, and although such "digital printing presses" today print much faster and even in color, the ubiquitous page printer is the desktop laser printer. See laser printer, LED printer, solid ink printer, digital printing and printer.
