Having a Chromebook can be amazing, but it can also be stressful when some things weren't made with your device or Google Cloud Print in mind. Fortunately, these printers are compatible with Chromebooks and are speedy, secure, have quality ink/toner, or all three. If we had to pick a favourite? We'd go for the HP OfficeJet Pro 9010 due to its features, as well as it being able to connect to multiple devices at once. It connects with Google Assistant for voice-activated printing and will automatically have ink ordered and set to you when it senses it's getting low. This machine also copies and faxes, plus scans documents straight to email or cloud storage. Scanned documents can be created to be searchable and editable from your phone, computer or other compatible devices.

The Samsung M2026W printer is also a great deal for anyone who needs a high-speed black and white printer for documents or letters. You'll never need to drive to Kinko's during tax time if you have one of these in your office.

Finally, if you take a lot of photos and want to print out a digital memory or two, the Epson Expression Home XP-352 is perfect. We love both the quality and speediness when it comes to printing out our pictures and think you will, too. The Epson Expression uses individual ink cartridges, so you don't have to replenish ink often, and prints images saved on your Chromebook or in Google Drive, or scanned and copied images directly from mobile devices or memory cards.
