Like Printing Money
When buying a laser printer for a school’s office or a building’s worth of classrooms, the purchase price matters less than how much the toner costs and how much electricity it uses. It’s a fact that over its five-year lifespan, a printer will often use ten-times its price on power and consumables. HP’s LaserJet P2035 printer goes against the grain in both areas by using half as much power as conventional printers and using inexpensive toner cartridges. But, you won’t pay for it in speed with the ability to crank out up to 30 pages per minute and the ability to connect via a USB cable or network. The printer can create super-sharp 1,200 by 1,200 dot per inch prints and is priced from $200 to $250 depending on whether you want networking.
