I probably print less than you. Most of the time I mayn't print
anything for a month or two.

I've two ancient printers that are still in reasonably good working
condition, a HP LaserJet 4L and a HP LaserJet 4M. I'd like to keep
using them, but the quote for one of the toner cartridges was more than
a new printer. Of course, I'll be better off getting the toner
cartridge (and so is the environment), but then I'm assessing this
on-the-whole. Most people will just look at the initial cost.

I've used several other inkjet printers that have convinced me that I
don't want to use a inkjet ever again. They waste so much ink, it
smudges so easy, they clog, the cartridges are way overpriced...
