There are lots of lightweight devices like projectors and multifunction units that boast super portability for the 'on-the-go' type, but Sharp's lending a bit of legitimacy to its claims this time.

Get A Grip: Meet The Multifunctional Printer Pseudo-Suitcase From SharpThe AL1035WH is a multifunction printer that throws print, copying and scanning into a small 7kg package, with realistic portability thanks to its attached handle to cart the unit around like an attaché case.

The monochrome laser printer  measures up to 422 x 291 x 130 mm and adds convenient connectivity with USB support for one-touch scanning direct to a USB device.

Other smart features that stand out include the ID Card copy function that will scan both sides of credit cards and similarly-sized cards and print them out on a single page.

The AL1035WH pushes out copies at speeds of around 10 copies per minute at 600 x 600 dpi, and will hold up to 40 pages in its tray.

Sharp's new multifunction unit has just hit Sharp dealers in the channel, going for an RRP of $599.
