From what I can gather, laser copiers give you more bang for the buck when compared to ink jets. I worked with a student teacher this year who received one as a gift right before she started at my school. She made a LOT of copies off just one toner cartridge and never ran out. Out of curiosity, I scoped out Staples, and you can get one for less that $200. Has anyone done this? I hate that teachers even feel the need to go this route, but nothing is going to change anytime soon, so I'm exploring my options.
