I'll second this. A couple years ago, when the inkjet I had died, I looked
at other inkjets (ANY MAKE *O*T*H*E*R* than HP!!!), and then the salesguys
chatted up a cute, small HP Laserjet 1018 (HP Laserjets, on the other
hand, *are* still good). After the promotional discount that was literally
half the price, I got it for about $68. No, that's not a mistake. It's
worked very well (though that model, I had to build the driver for). Color
- I get someone else to do, or do it at work.
