[GRLUG] Need to buy printer

I have an HP unit - printer, scanner -
which I got free with my last HP PC
system.  Watch the Office Max or
Office Depot ads for cheap printers.
$50 or so.

But the first round of new cartridges
could well eat up a big piece of $100.
IMHO home printers are a racket, and
are clearly intended to get one hooked
on cartridges, and are subsidized

Cartridge World,  1717 28th Street SW,
refills some cartridges, for 1/2 the new
price.  So does Walgreen.  Might make
sense to see which ones they fill before
buying anything - that's where the real
savings could be.
