First, let's determine your printing habits.

a printer that can handle high demand?
If it is, laser printer is a better way to go
as it is designed with a faster processor and print engine.

as it is designed to print high-quality images.

on the performance of laser and inkjet printers.
In general, laser printer can print high-quality
sharp text documents.

clear, high-resolution images.

have improved the quality of color print.
Inkjet printer is still better at
printing a better toned photo.
Another important factor to consider
is the printing speed.

laser printer is fitted for the job,
as it is typically engineered to
print faster than inkjet.
When it comes to printer and maintenance cost,
laser printer typically tends to be
more costly than inkjet printer.
But laser toner cartridge's cost per page
is typically lower than inkjet cartridge
since it can print more pages per toner cartridge.
Deciding on whether you should go with
an inkjet or laser printer really comes down
to what and how much you print.
Take this information into consideration,
and it will potentially save you hundreds of dollars.
