The Lexmark x4550 is an all-in-one wireless printer. It prints, faxes, scans and even makes photocopies of documents. When using the scan function, you can scan a page and copy it to a computer that is connected directly to the x4550, or send the scanned document to a computer that is on the same network as the scanner. You can also scan a page as a document, which allows you to edit the text in the scanned file.
