I am also wondering the same thing. I was about to order a 5500 today for my department and there seems to be a totally new RIP setup for $1000 more than before. On top of this, the old rip was a self-contained unit. The new one (same for the 10000 printer) for a 'mere' $2995.00 is only software and requires a dedicated server to run it, adding even more to the overall cost. My needs are for a classroom setup and I really wanted the former RIP that seems to still be available for the 5000 and 7000. Also, the greatly added cost has really thrown me. It was expensive enough before and now has become prohibitive just when I got authorization to order. Can anyone shed light on this issue?
