Re: Deskjet - sold for $1,000, and not subsidised.

I bought a Deskjet 500 back around the early '90s, couldn't remember the cost, probably around £400. I was able to print in "full" colour by: filling used cartridges with coloured ink (C/M/Y), running an Amiga program that created colour separated files, then printing onto the same piece of paper 4 times (changing out the cartridge for the appropriate colour each time).
