what's the smallest laser printer going these days? I'm trying to make the most of a small space...

for that matter, what's the smallest inkjet printer around? I'm looking at the Canon Pixma iP90...

I'm still kinda all over the place in deciding what I want, but I do want it small!

thanks!

Portable inkjets don't tend to save much space in use. They kinda have to spread out to run. And their ink is hella expensive.

A regular inkjet that can be loaded from the front (that is, not using a top-loading paper path) can be shoved in a shelf to save space. I'd recommend a Pixma iP4200 or 5200, which has both top and front loading paper paths.

Thanks, tooki! I'll look at these models, too.

The ink for the little portable ones, like the Pixma iP90 is more expensive than for the larger Pixmas? I guess that makes sense, smaller cartridges to fit the smaller body. Hadn't thought of that...
