I need to put in a colour laser printer for our office (ethernet networked).
It will be used almost exclusively to print our catalogues - we have multiple documents, they change all the time, and hence we don't get them done outside as the upfront costs and hassle make it too hard.
The print volumes are about 4,000 A4 sides per month.
If I use a starting guess of, say, 20c per page, then we are looking at consumable costs of abour $800 pm ($10,000 pa). Therefore a 10% change in costs will turn into $80 pm or about $1,000 pa.
Given this, it seems to me that the up front cost of the printer is probably less important than the per page cost (within reason).
Can anyone suggest either specific machines I should look at, or where I can find comparisons of per page costs for printers available in NZ?
I have Googled, and searched on Geekzone, but I can't find anything that shows me what I need - most references are to home printing and include suggestions to use continuous / ink systems - we are looking for a laser solution.
