  This is a common but fallacious argument against laser printers.  The
last time I bought a cartridge for my main printer, sure it was well
over $100.00...but I get about 25,000 pages out of a cartridge.  Do the
math. ;)

  Ink jet printers have been little more than a scam for many years now.
 It's along the same lines as the lottery being a tax on people who are
bad at math.  The only real exceptions are the large-format ones, for
which no better solution currently exists.
