With 8 MB of standard memory, it has no upgradable options. It connects via high-speed USB, and it does come with an optional wireless printer server.

Most sizes of paper are accepted, and plain paper, photo paper, vellum paper, rough paper, labels, envelopes, cardstock, postcards and transparencies are all supported. It is a sheet fed unit, and double-sided printing is not offered on the P1566, like it is on many newer models. The maximum that can be printed per minute is 22 pages, which isn't too shabby.
It only weighs 14.3 pounds, so it won't be too heavy to lift. It has dimensions of 12.2x9.6x9.7 inches, so it won't make a big footprint either.
