    Hewlett Packard Color Laser 1500L Printer, Model Q2488A $659.00.... Ok it may be out your budget.... but the next printer I get is going to be a color laser jet as they have come down to a reasonable level.

    Yup lasers are cheap to run and can use practically any media right down to loo role and produce excellent mono results. But when it coems to colour either pay HUGE wads of notes or buy a cheap inkjet printer ... that's why inkjets are so popular

    None in stock in any of the PC Worlds near me at all Tried Reading, Swindon and Oxford.

    I ain't driving to Scotland to get one.

    Really want CD printing now for some reason, looks like the i450 it is then.

    I've seen Colour laser printers for about £700 I think...
    And thats not looking too hard. Not cheap, but they are getting cheaper

    BUFF: The "Uni is shut" is not exactly a very likely scenario really..
    Its open every day, every hour..
    Its more of a case of whether or not I can be bothered to walk there at 3am
    Then again, how often do you need to go there at 3am.

    I guess my initial reason for not getting a printer (I was sure it wouldn't end up being cheaper) was correct. Still, oh well, at the very least, I got myself a cheap scanner (deduct the ink from the printer, and I've paid like £5 + postage for the printer/scanner ).

    Without wishing to muddy the waters, Trash, you might want to keep an eye open for the new Epson Stylus Photo R300. It looks interesting

    I went for the 900 in the end, bought a new one off eBay for £82.50, which I did not think was bad at all.

    Thanks for the advice everyone
