The above link says that there are drivers for windows 7 and Vista only.

It seems to me that you could contact Apple about this connectivity issue if Dell doesn't support Apple.

However, it may that since it is not supported by Dell, specifically, then it may be something that you can't do.

I would hope that Dell would make their printer compatible with the Apple Platform.

What have you tried to connect from the macbook pro to the wifi enabled printer?

How can I use my Dell 720 printer with my Macbook Pro?

Nope, It will almost definitly not work with your macbook. I have a macbook pro and a dell photo printer and there is no way I could get them working together. Dell does not seem to care about mac users. The installation CD for their printers do NOT work with mac os, only windows. An apple rep advised me to try using some of the laptops built in drivers, but i still couldnt get it to work. Short answer, maybe give it a try before buying another printer, but most likely you are not gonna be able to use your dell printer with the macbook. sorry, I wish dell would change their position on this issue as well.

Will Not print from my MacBook Pro in spite of trying both wireless and corded connections. Copies perfectly.

Deleted the original CD download. Then, reconnected the corded connection, as there is no wireless capacity. With both computer and printer reconnected, repeated the entire download process, and deleted all prior printers used by computer. System works fine if connected now.

Dell 968w printer - won't connect to my Mac. is there a driver I can download to fix the problem? Dell tech support states this printer won't support a Mac OS.

For basic printing, use the PC as a server:

I don't have personal experience, but I'm guessing that for photo printing you'll need a new printer.
