I concur with most of the discussion following my previous comments. 
Laser printers are king for low maintenance and cost-per-page; but ink 
is convenient in the circumstances noted. As Evan has stated, they need 
a tiny-office solution for quick signage and general but light printing 
use. Scanning is part of that solution.

However, a freebie B&W letter-size laser printer will print for FREE, 
and would be a good thing to locate elsewhere.

I'll only add, that my Epson ink carts (black and color) are a few years 
old but have not dried out. My print use is obviously occasional, but 
printing something each month is a really, REALLY good idea for any 
inkjet. The Epson has many print diagnostic modes and reports cartridge 
capacity and condition. These modern printers, laser and ink, are 
awfully smart.
