Is it possible to "upgrade" the HP Ink-cartridge 51640 (C,M,Y) to HP 51645 ? (since the shape is almost exactly the same)  The reason I ask is because I still have over 20 HP 51640 cartridges, and I would like to buy the new HP Deskjet 1220.  Thank you.

Nope - the #40 cartridges are for the ancient 1200C... they may look the same but the printhead is complete different (plus, they are individual colors). There is no way to upgrade them - you might try selling the ones you have on Ebay though (they probably are worth something to someone).

thanks-
