I am trying to decide between the SAMSUNG ML-1910/1915 laserjet printer and the HP P1102 laserjet to be shared amongst two users who print less than 5000 pages per month in total.

The question is whether a printer's processor speed is more important (e.g. the HP has a 266MHz processor vs the Samsung's 150MHz processor) or amount of RAM is more important (e.g. the HP only has 2MB RAM vs the Samsung's 8MB RAM) for the speed and efficacy of a printer?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Considering the numebr of prints being made, I doubt the processing speed will make much differance. I would consider printing speed rather(PPM). If the users are printing documents with a lot of graphics in them then I would rather choose a printer with more RAM.

Thanks for your advice. They both have the same PPM so I will probably just choose the one with more RAM then (it also hapens to have a higher page duty cycle).
