I would look at the various printer models currently available and then price up the ink cartridges, and also get a rough estimate on the amount of prints available. I use an Epson printer and an HP printer and find that even though the Epson cartridges are cheaper, the Epson is more expensive to run as it uses twice as much ink going through a cleaning process each time used.

Why don't you buy a Canon i320 for £44 from ebuyer ...... i bought it as a replacement printer because my son uses my printer to do painting etc........and i use it to do lots of printing off the web as well as tax and vat etc.......i came accross a recommentdation from here - click here , my main reason for buying the printer was as a replacement for my old printer which was a HP Deskjet 840C for which i got sick and tired of paying £29 for colour and £24 for black cartridges........i now buy compatible cartridges for the i320 both colour and black for £4.99 from choice stationery.....i was going to buy the Canon i850 (which i will still).....but i have been so impressed with the I320, which i've had for a month and done alot of printing.........about 1000 sheets so far with lots of photos.........and only changed the cartridges twice............
