What's the difference between 48-bit depth and 24-bit depth in a scanner? I'm about to purchase a printer/scanner combo but there is a little difference between two possible candidates.
- One has 48 bit depth, 1200 x 1200 DPI copy resolution (Black and white or colour)
- The other has 24 bit depth, "up to 600 optimised DPI" (Both black and white or colour.)
The first item is two times more expensive than the latter. What will I miss if I purchase the one on the bottom?
