Default Lazer Printers

Hey guy's i'm currently intrested in buying new lazer printer, my old one is an inkjet printer, it's a nightmare, it's like a Canon ip3000 or something.

I need some information like if i have about 200USD, can i get a color lazer printer? How much do the refills or new cartrages cost?

Some good info would be greatfull.

toners for laser printers last a lot longet than inkjet cartridges, but cost more too.

I personally have a Canon iP4000 and am very happy with it. runs well and cartridges cost around AU$5 each

I dont know what its like in the US, but I think you'd be lucky to get a b&w laser printer for that much.
+ the toner carts would probably cost about half that each time anyway and thats just for b&w never mind colour.

$100USD - HP fast little home printer. Not sure of toner cost. I have a samsung B&W and it costs me a little over 70$USD per toner cartridge, however i get about 20k prints per cartridge.
