There are a number of answers... First, color laser printers are much more expensive, in general, than inkjet printers. They're also physically larger, heavier, etc. Second, IMHO -- the ones I've seen can't match the output quality of an Epson printer, in good repair, using quality inks and paper. For "business graphics," maybe. For photos, not even close. I wouldn't be surprised if things change over the next couple of years. It's only been a few short years since BW laser printers were affordable for personal use. Long term, though, color printing will always be more expensive and more complicated than BW printing -- except for the case of BW printing via multitones. rafe b. - Please turn off HTML mail features.
