But the same story applies. There are dirt cheap lasers with expensive tiny toners, and there are expensive lasers with affordable toners.
hence my 'Yeah' in my response -
my point was just that this is a first for inkjet.
Even in case of inkjets, HP's officejet pro models had much cheaper ink prices compared to deskjet models. I'm sure other brands also offer such distinctions.
that was a step in the right direction.
(Ironically, I know a couple of people with HP printers, and they still use much cheaper replacement inks - but I suspect they are doing better with this model than the other manufacturers).
I feel this article is rather a piece of advertorial paid by Epson.
but I'm still happy to see the advance. These days, so many people use replacement inks, that the manufacturer's business model (of cheap hardware and expensive inks) is probably starting to fail.
