An inkjet printer isn't the best choice for heavy-duty business chores, but it can earn its keep for specialized use around the office. Our shopping guide helps you find the best inkjet printers for your money.

The color inkjet printer isn’t extinct in a business setting just yet…not by a long shot. If you're printing a hefty daily volume of text pages, then a laser printer makes perfect sense for your business. But there are plenty of business situations where it makes sense to use an inkjet printer instead of a laser.

You might also be surprised to learn that office-class inkjet printers are faster and more economical than ever before, and that it's easier to accurately compare the cost-per-page for consumables. The shopping guide published by our sister site -- HardwareCentral.com -- has all the details.


If you're running a workgroup, small enterprise or home office and considering printers for your business, you might exclude inkjet printers from your deliberations. That's because it's easy to be blinded by the cult of the laser printer.

Don't misunderstand -- for heavy-duty office work, an industrial-strength laser is an undeniable asset. But certain types of people -- graphics pros and desktop publishers, for instance -- may find an inkjet printer more useful than a hulking laser.
