Whether you just happen to be surfing the web, reading a news article, or viewing a document on your new iPad and you want to print out, or you're doing actual work, for work, and need a hard copy, AirPrint makes is easy to print just about anything right from your iPad -- as long as your printer is compatible.

Once you've got your printer configured to support AirPrint, you can print straight from your iPad.
That's all there is to it. Your content should print directly to the printer with no computer required.
