Blue tooth printer

Hi! I am thinking of buying a printer that can print without cables (is it called blue tooth technology?)

I don't need complicated functions, just basic colour printing and scanning.

1. Any brand to recommend?
2. If my laptop has no CD drive, how do I install the printer?
3. Are there any home printers that can print on A3 size paper but yet compact enough to put on a study table? Those office printers are humongous.
4. Any disadvantage in using a printer with blue tooth technology?

Thank you.

Such printer uses Wifi but not BT, Wifi have higher data rate
than BT if not photoprint will take considerable time to buffer.
You can consider Canon PIXMA iX6870 $3XX. and etc.
If you don't often print A3 can go photo shop, have your printout
printed there.

I'm not sure whether there are bluetooth printers but I would choose Wi-Fi printers instead as it's faster for large files to transfer over.

Your home got WiFi right? Get a WiFi printer better lah. Last time go to shop to print photo I made a mistake by choosing to transfer photos via Bluetooth. Took like 10+ minutes to transfer 2 photos....
