Laser printers take some time to heat up, and upfront, costs are more than inkjet printers, but they can't be beaten for volume and clarity. You'll also likely save some money in the long run on a per sheet basis. Some of these printers even overlap with the best AirPrint printers, meaning you can print right from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac wirelessly! Here are the best Mac laser printers you can buy right now.

The best Mac laser printers have a ton of advantages over your typical inkjet printers and are a very viable option for at-home use. These types of printers will save you money in the long run. Although your average toner cartridge for a laser printer is more expensive than an ink cartridge, toner lasts a lot longer, and because it's a powder, it can't dry out over time. Plus, laser printers offer much sharper lines than inkjet, meaning small text is much easier to read as it always comes out crisp and clear. So if you're looking for a printer to hook up to your 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1, the best Mac laser printers are all great options.

Of course, laser printers aren't quite as good at printing photos as a high-quality inkjet printer would be. Inkjets can often have up to six or more ink colors, blending colors smoothly and producing more colors.

Overall, we're most impressed with the Xerox B210DNI, which is a low-cost solution for use at home. It prints fast and efficiently in black and white, so it's perfect for school assignments and documents. It's compact, simple, and swift at printing large documents. If you're looking for a color laser printer that won't break the bank, consider the HP Color LaserJet Pro M254dw.
