No. It does not interface with laptops. Not that that matters. Both of the units I purchased 3 months ago have failed and no longer will interact with ANY computer although I can still copy pages on it using it as a regular, non-computer connected, copier. I strongly advise you NOT to buy this unit.

Does this printer make alot of noise before it prints?

I have an hp printer now and as it gets ready to print it pops and makes all kinds of noise as it warms up. In other words you have to shut the door if someone is sleeping

This unit does NOT make noise as it is warming up. It seems available all the time and responds to print requests right away. BUT it does make noise while actually printing and would not work in a situation where you need to consider sleepers nearby--such as in a joint dorm room. The bigger problem is that these units are seriously defective. I both TWO of these units 3 months ago and both have already stopped working. You also can't use any form of discount in cartrages in them. This unit will ONLY operate using original HP 61 cartrages and those only make less than 100 copies each so ink is just NUTTY EXPENSIVE with these units. If you want your printer to last longer than three months---don't buy this product.

yes, it does make noises when it is first turned on, and yes, you would have to close the door, but I think it is worth it.

Question

i currently have an HP 2050 and am considering buying the 2512. I found one at Walmart, but was concerned that the USB cord is not included.

Do I need a USB cord?

answer 1
Yes you need to buy the USB cord. At first when I set the printer up using the CD installation, it told me that I had the option to skip the cord and just install the printer program onto my laptop. But then I was like.... ok.... where's the USB cord then?!?! Then I double checked the box that came along with to see if I would need to buy the cord and on the box, it BOLDLY stated that I do need to have my own USB cord.

I bought my print USB cord at Walmart for $15 by the electronic section.

Yes, but if you already have one with the 2050, you should be able to use that. Unless, of course, you still need it for the 2050 as a 2nd printer. They don't cost much, though. You should be able to pick one up at Walmart for just a couple of bucks.

Yes it is wireless but you must have a wireless router. If your computer is directly connected to your cable company and you are not using a wireless router you will need to connect the printer to your computer for printing functions. Copier works with or without the computer.

Is this printer easy to set up and connect to your network with it's wireless feature?

answer 1
Though this is not a wireless printer, you MAY be able to access it wirelessly if one other computer is in the wireless network, and wired to the printer. Microsoft likes to brag that every component using any OS since XP can "easily" access the printer through a wireless system. I spent much of a day trying to find the right string of commands that would allow my Vista laptop to print through an XP computer, via the wireless router. And... I DID IT! For about an hour. Then I shut the system down for the day, and have not been able to print from my laptop since, unless I connect directly to the printer. But your mileage may vary.

answer 4
When I was considering this printer our server uses Windows 8. I went to HP's website and there was a download available. It's not software that is on the CD. Since I hooked the printer up locally, ultimately it wasn't an issue for me. Check out the website below. Just did a google search on HP 2512 drivers. The drivers do seem to be available for this 2500 series printer.

it comes with both color and ink. But usually you'll get a message that says you only have a black ink cartridge installed, therefore it will only print in cues of black.
