I've been dying for an inkjet printer. Here's one

The lady is upgrading to a laser from
this printer. We have a laser printer. They are
better. Yes, ours is only black and white, but I can
print almost all color things for you that you need.
Anything else, just go to Kinkos. Color ink cartridges
cost a fortune. That is why they practically give
printers away, because they make their money on the ink.

I know, laser is better, but for what I need an inkjet would be really helpful. I could print out all kinds of wonderful things. :) And I know the ink is pricey, but I would love to be able to use cardstock in a machine, or print labels or envelopes or cards...the possibilities are endless.
The best price I found for our toner cartridges was about $22 (much less than over $100 like HP wants). It will print up to 3500 pages.
At the cheapest prices, it costs about 0.63 cents per page for our printer. The inkjet would cost (with the cheapest cartridges) 1.67 cents per page for black and white, and 2.42 cents per page for color.
Of course, there are shipping costs and all that, but this at least gives you a decent idea of the difference between the two (assuming you haven't fallen asleep already). Black and white prints from an inkjet cost 2.5 to 3 times more than they do from the laser, and color costs almost 4 times what our B&W laser does.
Stupid math. :-(
