I bought a HP monochrome laser printer in Argos for around a ton. This 
has sorted my dead-ink reservoir prombles.

You *can* get them a lot cheaper there, but beware! Check whether you 
can get the refill toner cartridges before you buy. I made a list of all 
the monochrome laser printers on offer, and the HP was the only one my 
local fiendly pootershop could source.
