+ - Charging More for Printers and Less for Ink->

Submitted by rkcallaghan
rkcallaghan (858110) writes "The New York Times (now registration free!) writes: "Today Xerox is unveiling a costly solid-ink printer for businesses that will print color pages at the same price as black and white. The printer, which can handle 30 pages a minute, will cost $2,499, about $900 more than laser printers that operate at similar speeds. The cost of ink to print 14,000 black-and-white ink pages is about $216, in line with the price for a page from laser printers using toner. But the cost of printing in color will be the same, $72 each for the three ink sticks needed for a wide-color spectrum. Laser toner to print the same number of color pages could cost five times as much.""
