I'm always on the lookout for new office products that can help me stay productive. Recently, I found out about three brand new products that are a perfect fit for any desk (unless you have a really small one). These new items make a nice trio for a new employee who needs to start working right away and doesn't want to mess around with lesser gear.

This 18-pages-per-minute printer is a productivity enhancer. You can print, scan, copy, and fax with one workgroup device that's much lower in price than many multi-function printers. A new "printer hub" feature means you can process documents from cloud services like Box.net.

If you can purchase a monitor with 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels), do it. You are future-proofing yourself for more precise photo and video editing, and every document will look stunningly crisp. This Viewsonic 27-inch model is bright, colorful, and connects using an HDMI cable.

Lenovo makes larger “business” laptops, but this slim notebook is also ideal for the office. It has an HDMI-out port (unlike many slim laptops) for connecting to a desktop monitor in the office. At 1.87 pounds, it is light enough to bring to meetings yet has a fast intel Mobile M processor.
