Another +1 for laser.  My wife does editing and had a need for
fast printing of large documents including color for comments etc.
We went with a large Ricoh printer about 10 years ago.  Still
in use after about 300,000 pages.

At the time we had a PhotoJet for printing pictures.  The
quality of the laser prints was sufficient for our needs
so the PJ sits in a closet.

One thing that helps the appearance of laser printed
photos is to use a heavy, high gloss paper.
