1000/485: 01 July 2011: Printer inks

Some one is taking the mickey methinks. Called in at Asda and filled my car with diesel. 65 litres - £85 or thereabouts. ThenI called in at PC world to refill two printers with ink - probably about 150 millilitres in total - £65 or thereabouts.

Can't really complain at PC World - their brand was at least 15% cheaper than the 'real' thing. It's pretty obvious that there's no profit in flogging printers - you make all your money from flogging the peripherals because you effectively have a monopoly once the printer's bought.

Anyway - I shall be looking at continuous ink systems when I get back from hols.
