- I finally bought a Dell colored laser printer for my graphic class. It did run around $1,200. For the four previous years I had bought an Epson colored printer and love the quality, but with so much use they died at the end of every year. What was so funny, I bought them at Best Buy and bought the waranty, so for the last 3 years all the printers were replaced for free. Now I only use the epson for me.
