Color Inket vs Color Laser running costs.


I am looking at getting a multi-function device that prints colour. I am trying to decide between laser colour and inkjet. What interests
me is the running cost. The initial purchase price does not bother me as much.

So I am interested to see what the current thinking as costs go.

Is inkjet really cheaper? I have heard that they can waste a lot of ink in cleaning and can dry up and have problems when not used for a little while. Which would tip the scales in favour of laser?

So I am interested if others have re-searched this and what the current thinking is. The brand btw I am favouring at the moment is HP.
