Auntie reports on a study by Computeractive Magazine which purports to show that it can cost up to £1770.00 over 18 months to use a cheap inkjet printer. What tosh! Anyone spending that kind of money on inkjet printing clearly wants their head examining and needs to get a colour laser printer pronto.
As with all of these stupid reports one important fact is forgotten – before the era of cheap inkjet printers it would cost around £4000.00 to buy a colour printer, which made it a rich man’s sport. Now at least everyone can afford to print out photos and the like, and the cost therefore becomes a reflection of how much they use the printer. Nobody complains about the expense of Gillette replacement shaving heads do they? Sheesh!
