Excerpt: Inkjets have their advantages in the office. HP's Officejet Pro K8600 is an A3+ office printer with some of the lowest print costs we've seen from an inkjet or laser. HP hopes this will appeal to small and medium-sized businesses who want to match the speed and quality of a colour laser without the cost and inconvenience of consumables. At £169, the K8600 is cheaper than most A4 colour lasers.
