MacBook Compatible Portable Printers And Scanning DevicesApple compatible portable printers are a niche product for select markets that need a small and compact A/C or battery-powered printer for use on the go. There's not alot of choice here for mobile printing needs, but Canon, Epson and Hewlett-Packard each offer iOS and Mac compatible travel printing solutions for the road warrior. They're also ideal for desktop users wanting an unobtrusive, minimalistic inkjet portable printer with USB, WiFi wireless direct, and AirPrint compatibility that doesn't take up much desk space.

The OfficeJet 200 printer features a 2" LCD grayscale control panel, while the Print-Scan-Copy OfficeJet 250 features a slightly larger 2.5" color display.

Canon Portable Printer With AirPrintFor many years, Canon Inc. was the primary, sole-prodiver of a Mac compatible portable printing solution with it's BJC 'BubbleJet' color inkjet printer. It was resonably compact with a USB port, an optional, separate bolt-on battery and Bluetooth wireless printing module for mobile wireless use if desired. Sucessive generations led to the Pixma iP100 portable printer which was on the market for 5 years. The latest, revised iP110 WiFi mobile printer with Apple AirPrint and WiFi Direct support was recently released. The iP110 is a popular choice for mobile professionals who simply MUST print on the road in their line of work.
HP Portable All-In-One Printer With AirPrintEventually, Hewlett-Packard entered the Mac compatible portable printer market with various iterations of it's chunky but compact, "OfficeJet" mobile printing line. The various models offered a choice of USB, USB plus Bluetooth, USB plus Wireless connectivity depending on the model #. The currently shipping edition - the OfficeJet 200 offers both a battery-powered printer with USB and WiFi direct wireless printing included in a chunky but reasonably compact form factor weighing in at around 5.5 pounds.
HP Portable All-In-One Printers With AirPrintHP released BOTH a Mac compatible portable scanner AND printing solution: First in it's 150 model and now a newer 250 AIO model. For select MacBook users, this has been a long-desired mobile copy/scan/print product that's finally reached the market that obviates the need to carry a separate Mac Apple compatible portable scanner and printer. The copy functions certainly come in handy, and the scanning abilities are likely high in demand for receipt and expense tracking when on business trips.
Epson Portable Printer With AirPrintWith it's WorkForce WF-100 model, Epson finally joined the compact and mobile battery-powered printing market with what is now one of the smallest, lightest and most compact AirPrint and Wi-Fi wireless direct travel printing solution ever offered. Unlike HP and Canon with 'Bolt-On' battery options, Epson incorporates the rechargable LiOn battery directly into the printer housing, not attached on the backside like the others. Do note that the WF100 has an excess ink maintenence box that needs replacing periodically - an added expense above and beyond mere ink replacement.
Previous Generation HP Portable Printing SolutionsThe OJ100 and OJ150 have been replaced by the updated and Wi-Fi enabled wireless direct HP OJ200 and HPOJ250 models. You might be able to find a deal on these recently discontinued models which use USB or Bluetooth connectivity.
