I know several students that purchase inexpensive ink-jet printers that
work perfectly. When the ink runs out, they just replace the unit. The
cost is about the same.

I could replace probably four cheap ink-jet units for what it is gong to
cost me just to replace the cartridges in my Brother Laser Color unit.
Then when you factor in the other parts that eventually will need
replacement, it really gets expensive.
