I think we beat that one to death one this list. Try the May 2004 archives:

Power requirements alone may preclude lasers in most jurisdictions.

I guess it's relative. Back in around '92, the company I was working for
first purchased a color printer for desktop publishing. I think the printer
alone cost over $10,000. My HP business inkjet 2200 -- which I paid around
$300 for in 2002 -- is far faster and better than the $10,000 printer from
1992. I also have an Epson R300 photo printer that I paid $70 a year or so
ago (Fry's) that prints photo quality (albeit a bit slowly) that is
spectacular in comparison to the $10,000 1992 printer.

So, I'd modify your motto to "pick two, or wait."

Yes, over time, we really do seem to be getting technology that is cheaper,
faster, and better.
