Ok, maybe it can be inkjet, if you know one without the problems that inkjet normally has?

  1. Expensive per-page cost for color cartridges
  2. Delicate print heads
  3. Alignment problems
  4. Short printer life

I'm looking for a 4 to 10 cent per page cost or thereabouts. If lasers exist that won't break the bank, that would be really cool. I don't care about printing photos, but I do need color graphs.

Looks promising. Cartridges $14 for a set from Amazon. Do you own one? Do you like it? – Robert Harvey Feb 24 '10 at 3:37
Ouch. 50 bucks for genuine Canon cartridges. – Robert Harvey Feb 24 '10 at 3:40
@Robert Harvey - Yes. I also had an older similar model, iP3300 - worked flawlessly for, (?) hard to say, two maybe three years. – Rook Feb 24 '10 at 3:47
Mind you, I do print relatively a lot, ~1000 pages/monthly. – Rook Feb 24 '10 at 3:48
All replacable cartridges, of course :) – Rook Feb 24 '10 at 18:16
