I need a portable B&W printer for a college student who has a Chromebook


I'm looking for a black and white printer for a daughter. She's a college student with a chromebook. I want either direct usb connection or bluetooth, the simpler the better. So she can just connect, print her college papers, and be done. Needs to be something she can carry in the back seat of her car.

If you want to be able to directly print from a Chromebook, you will need a printer that is Google Cloud enabled (as Chromebooks don't come with drivers for printers and it's not possible to install drivers on them). Chromebooks do not support printing from local printers via USB port.

Otherwise you will need to use Google Cloud Print on a printer that needs to be on and connected to a PC (Mac, Linux etc.) that is on and which is connected to the internet (all of which is a bit of a pain and sometimes producing funny results in terms of the margins of the printed page and so on).
