Speaking of printers, I've just bought an HP Photosmart D7460 for
$99 and am looking into replacing my venerable HP LJ 4M+ with a Xerox
860S. Both have duplexing options, both have large paper tray
options, but the Xerox 860S has cost for black-only copies that's
basically the cost of the paper (black ink is free for life from
Xerox), while the HP LJ4M+ costs about .01-.02 for toner depending on
the cost of the cartridge. In addition, the Xerox does 1200dpi (as
opposed to 600dpi for my HP) and it's a good deal faster. Oh, and
the Xerox does really good color printing and the HP... well, it's from 1994.

I've used the HP for AGES because it's a great, dependable unit that
is a benchmark for "workhorse" but it's time to retire it. I'll
probably be getting the Xerox in the next 3-9 months. They're
available used for $500 or so.

Yours truly,
