      If you read Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, you will remember
there is a circle in hell where the only printer is an inkjet one and
behind it there are an infinite number of toners, half of them with
just one digit in its part number off and the other half with dried
out nozzles. Go read it again; I beleive it is the circle where
Comcast managers get thrown at.

There are reasonably priced colour laser printers out there. They
might not be $50 but you don't have to spend a grand for one.
