Whenever I buy an inkjet, I price the ink cartridges first, then match the printer to them. I recently got a Canon MP550 for about $150, it is a good quality printer, and the ink is much cheaper compared to HP, Epson or Lexmark.

You can’t just look at price alone, there needs to be a yield comparison. Some cartridges are larger than others, there is no standard for prints per cartridge size.

Any of the multi functions offered by Officeworks will suffice. Often they have really good specials on printers. I just picked up a samsung colour laser for $166.

To find the prints per cartridge you will need to perform some research on their websites, it can be hard to locate.
