You want a laser printer.
Work out the cost per page of paper and buy the most cost effective model you can afford. Expect to easily spend more money on toner than the printer itself over the course of the printers life.
Just start reading reviews and pay attention to toner options. Some consumer models have poorly priced toner and things like that. Cost per page is what matters.
When considering two models...see how much you will need to print in order to justify stepping up to a more expensive model with more cost effective toner.
Laser printers are the only way to go..no question.
Better models print faster with more resolution. For what most people do, you just want it to be fast enough..and fine enough.
