So I recently bought a macbook pro, and they still come with a printer that's free after rebate. I've got a great printer right now which is substantially better than freebie, but I'm not about to not take a free printer.

The question is what to do with it. I could sell it on eBay, but as expected, there's a bit of a flood of these on there right now, not really worth much. And honestly, it's worth more than 25$ to me to keep it as a backup.

Anybody have any lucking getting a store to give you exchange credit? Seems in the past year or two every store has taken a no-receipt, no-love policy, even the old stalwart walmart. Best Buy sells it for 85$ right now, if only they'd take it back!

Sell it if you need, or the gift idea.

Put it in the back of your closet. Never now if your current printer decides it does not want to work anymore and your stuck with no printer.:apple:

Or that. I printed a lot of things when I was able to use a printer.

Will it blend?

But really, keep it as a backup or give it as a gift to somebody.

Before I got into Macs, we bought a dell, that came with a free printer. At the time I had an excellent Photo Printer that I used. I decided to hook the dell printer anyway, as the ink was a lot cheaper then my photo printer. So I switched all my document printing to the dell, and then left my photo printing to the photo printer. I still use it to this day as this setup. I go through twice as much ink on the dell printer at about half the cost of the Epson Ink for my photo printer...Im happy with this, and if you do any amount of photo printing this may be a valuable option for you..
