What Kind of Printer Can I Add to a Toshiba Laptop?
A compatible printer depends on your operating system. (paper feed image by Glenn Jenkinson from Fotolia.com)

A printer's compatibility with any given computer depends very little on what type of computer you have. What matters is what operating system you have installed on your computer. Since the operating system facilitates a computer's communication with an attached printer, the printer must be compatible with the operating system. Printer compatibility is usually listed on the printer's packaging materials and in the instruction guide or owner's manual.
