HP's new printers
Associated Press reports that HP has launched a new line of inkjet printers.
The first printer with a printing head made with the new technology will be a $199 machine that can print a 4-by-6-inch photo in 14 seconds. It goes on sale later this month.Later, the article states:
HP is following up this fall with a heavier-duty printer intended to supplant color laser printers for office use and a multifunction machine that also scans and faxes.
HP also addressed the price issue Monday, saying a 4x6 print can cost as little as 24 cents for customers who buy its "value packs," which combine paper and ink. That makes it competitive with Main Street photofinishers who print on traditional silver halide paper.Really? That cheap, huh? I'll wait and see. I wonder how much of that 24 cents goes into the ink alone. And how did they come to that magic number anyway?
