Hi I need to source a printing solution for a kid who has just started at a very competitive high school.  I am hoping to be able to get a laser printer that does an ok job printing photo's.   Is this possible these days or should I just stick with an ink jet?

HP LaserJet P1005 could do the job. It is an A4 printer. You have not mentioned your paper size requirement that's why I telling you an standard A4 printer. It is good deal in less price

I am specifically asking about printing photos' on a laser printer or whether I am best going with an inkjet.

I am talking a4 printing.

the P1005 is a discontinued product.

The reviews for the HP LaserJet Pro CP1025 say it is bad for photos..

I cannot say I have ever seen a laser printer do a good job of photos but I haven't had much to do with printing in the last few years which is why I am asking this question.

Lasers are the wrong choice for printing photos. They will print a better photo than an inkjet, on plain paper. They also print reports and homework much better, faster and cheaper. If that is your main concern, by all means get a laser. If you need it mainly for high quality photos (on special paper) get an inkjet.

I use a Fuji-Xerox CM305DF (with scanner). It gives very good quality, it's fast and economical. In the US, the equivalent is the Xerox WorkCentre 6505 (or the Phaser 6500 without the scanner)
