No it does not have a cord for printer usage. Depending on your application, you may be happier with a wifi printer. Currently the Canon PIXMA MG3122 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer/Copier/Scanner is on sale for less than 60 bucks. I own the PIXMA 5220, and it is great.

answer 8
The cord to connect to the computer should have come with the printer its self, normally (meaning in the recent years) the cords that come with printers are usb cables. if its an older printer (meaning 2002 or earlier) you may need to purchase an adapter to be able to use it. but if you printer did not come with or you no longer have the cord i would consider buying a new cord. the cords for printer are based on what brand and model of printer you have (these cords normally don't cost more than $5 U.S.D.)

Hope this helped you :)

Keyboard area and rest of laptop is black. It is slightly textured around keyboard area. I sure hope this helped to answer your questions.

It has an actual 449GB availability. More than likely the 51 extra GB is part of the ghost image for the factory default reset. So yes...it is more than likely 500GB total, but only 449GB availability (this is not including the default OS and programs, which equate to about 25 GB).
