It’s really the give away the razor and sell the blade model isn’t it? According to this post on Engadget, Dell is introducing a 15ppm, 600 dpi laser printer for only $99, which has typically been the cost of entry into the inkjet market. The toner that it ships with yields 1,000 pages and there is a 2,000 page toner available — I couldn’t find any pricing for the toner, but the expected ship date for the printer is 6/28/05. I certainly plan on getting one for my house as I burn through black inkjet cartridges like it’s going out of style, and with the USB cable, I can share it among my entire network with my Airport Extreme.
Ok, so where’s the $199 color laser printer?
UPDATE — this article on News.com states that the price of the 2,000 page toner will be around $65.
