I was reading a blurb on Dell's new $99 laser printer today, (http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20050621-5022.html) which contained a link to an interesting story that noted that ink jet ink sells for an effective price of upto $8000 a gallon. http://www.ebusinessforum.com/index.asp?doc_id=7159&layout=rich_story. I had never thought of it that way. In little cartridges bought one at a time, it doesn't seem that expensive. Makes me look at inkjet ink in a whole new way. I suppose this shouldn't dissuade folks thinking about buying an inkjet over laser as the price per page is what matters, but it is interesting to mull over.
