Would've accorded this excellent machine the maximum rating of 5 stars were it not for the dizzyingly high price of the ink cartridges. HP... why are you doing this? Whatever happened to the old-fashioned (but highly effective) business model/approach of 'lower unit profit, higher turnover' (leading to ultimately higher overall profits for you than that yielded by the 'higher unit profit, lower turnover' approach, not to mention much better affordability for the customer). Alternatively, keep the prices the same, but design the whole thing to accommodate larger ink cartridges containing more ink (and thus representing better value for the customer). If you simply tweak your ink-cartrige pricing formula (as outlined above), believe me it'll be a 'win-win' scenario for both the manufacturer (i.e. you, HP) AND the customer. Why didn't this occur to you, HP? Otherwise, a really good machine - full of excellent features, including seamless wifi-based wireless operation - at a fair price (spoilt only by prohibitively-priced ink cartridges).
