Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner
Fujitsu today unveiled its "first-ever" scanner compatible with the Macintosh platform. The scanning solution supports Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger," delivering an affordable and easy-to-use color scanner that allows business professionals to quickly convert paper documents to Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files. It also includes the Fujitsu ScanSnap 50-page automatic document feeder (ADF), the only low priced ADF duplex scanner available to Mac customers, accoring to Fujitsu. As "the first and only" high-speed, double-sided color scanner under $500, the compact, upright, "one-button" scanner allows users to scan at speeds up to 15 ppm for single-sided documents and 30 images per minute for double-sided documents. It is now available for $500.
"In addition, its 'always on' convenience, connectivity, and amazingly small
footprint allows the scanner to sit comfortably aside the business
professional in the office."
Multi-page documents containing color, black and white, and text and graphic information on both sides can be processed into authentic, searchable Adobe PDF files with the bundled Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard software ($300). The USB 2.0-enabled device features a dual 600dpi color CCD optical array.
