Laptop printers are everywhere it seems. In the
office, in the home, in the car, at the bank, in subway stations, in airports, in schools, in your local golf
starter shack and even in some peoples kitchen.
They exist because there will always be a need for
printing out a hardcopy of reports, spreadsheets or notes you have taken on your computer.
Sometimes while surfing on the Internet you come to a website and just have to have a hardcopy printout of
that web page for whatever reason.
No one and I mean no one can own a computer laptop or
desktop today and not need to print something out on a printer. It boils down to if you
have a laptop computer, you need to have one or two laptop printers. Laptop printers out sale
laptop computer sales every year. So when shopping for a laptop computer you should also budget for one of
the many laptop printers.
Tip: It has been my experience that refurbished printers are nothing but trouble. Stay
clear of them at all cost. Always shop for new laptop printers.
Here is a brief guide if you are in the market for a computer printer
for your laptop or desktop computer. One major factor you should keep in mind while choosing a printer is
the cost of ink cartridges and ink refills. Even in the short term ownership of your computer
printer you will end up spending more dollars for the ink cartridges and ink refills than for the
actually printer itself. I know hard to believe right. Not really.
Tip: Laser printers will save you money in the
long run. The ink will last you longer. The part I like: They do not take forever to
print your page.
Owning one of the many flavors of
laptop printers is like owning a car. When the gas tank reads empty you have to buy gas so it will keep
running. When your printers ink cartridge reads empty you have to buy more ink to keep it running
as well or it will no longer print.
Ownership of a computer printer is not cheap. However, buying a good
quality printer can normally be a low cost purchase. A color ink jet printer can be found for around $50.00 -
$200.00. Even a black and white laser printer these days can be picked up for as low as $99.95. They normally all
come with a limit amount of ink to printout around 1000 hard copies before having to buy ink.
Cool Tip: When buying a
printer always check to see how much it will cost you for a ink cartridge refill. These little expensive
items vary in cost from printer to printer. Some will last longer and give you more hardcopy printouts
than others. So be sure to figure in the cost of a ink cartridge refill when determining the over all
cost of a printer.
Tip: When it comes to a nice laptop printer and you want the best of both worlds than buy a
color laser. However, they can be expensive.
