New Fujitsu ScanSnap S300M

Just about everyone who has used one seems to rave about Fujitsu's ScanSnap line of sheet-fed scanners, especially when combined with OCR software like DEVONthink Pro Office. The only problem has been the price, running at nearly $500. Well, Macworld is reporting that Fujitsu is finally going to release Mac support for their newest, portable ScanSnap S300 which has hitherto been Windows only and which costs a considerably more palatable $295.

Unfortunately, it will not come with the full version of Adobe Acrobat like the more expensive scanners in the line, but it looks to be a good deal both for mobile and for home users looking to get organized. It will provide full-duplex scanning to PDF at 8ppm. Fujitsu's site has not been updated yet, but the scanner is expected to ship in March.
