Olga Simoncelli If you're looking for a great inexpensive printer that's sturdy for constant moving around, I STRONGLY recommend an HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 ($89.99 @Staples)

They're fast, have auto-duplex (2-sided) printing, can scan, and copy in both color and black & white.

I've traveled all over the US and parts of Europe with earlier versions of this model. They've been in suitcases that were bounced around, thrown in the trunk of my car without any protection of any kind, been dropped off hotel desks, and they work as if they just came out of the box.

I wouldn't use anything else.

I use an app on my phone ScannerPro. Cost $2.99 from app store. Best money I ever spent. Open the app, take a photo and it creates a pdf document. Then I can email or text directly from app. Love it!!

I have been happy with all of the cheap 3in1's at Walmart, HP, Canon, and others.

All work about the same and are very cheap, except for the expensive ink.

I'm sure you'll get some good answers, Olga... but not from me... I have a big honker of a Lexmark in my office and don't print portably. Had one years and years and years ago... and it never really worked well and was a pain to carry around.

I am so glad you asked this question Olga Simoncelli as I too would like to find a good small portable printer for myself. Preferably one that fits right in my laptop case.

Portable? Do you mean you want to transport it everywhere you go? I use a scanning app and don't need copies.

They are all made of plastic and most likely made in the very same factory.

Based on how PORTABLE your needs are, such as Ken's baggage and flight requirements. the greatest concern you must have, and have no way to get the answer, is how does the printer manage the ''waste" ink created from borderless printing and cleaning ink jets.  If waste ink ends up in a reservoir, inversion of the printer will be incredibly problematic. If waste inks ends in a sponge or other absorbent material. you are good to go.  Of course the same issue exists with eco-tank printers. 

I would buy what ever Staples or Best Buy is promoting at the front door and get the warranty if you know this printer is headed into an inclement environment.
