Good advice - from about half a decade ago.

Inkjets have been steadily gaining over lasers over the past few years to the point where quite a few of them are actually cheaper to run. Hell, some of them have even taken a step backwards in the right direction and went with the dirt cheap refillable tanks in exchange for a costlier device at the outset {extra costly depending on features you need}. Likewise, pretty much all manufacturers swapped out water and alcohol-based ink in favor of oil and pigment, so the few days it took them to dry out if not used turned into a few months.

Overall, the only thing lasers still have going for them is speed of printing and overall capacity for abuse, which can be crucial for large offices, but less so on smaller scale.
