I bought a Lexmark Optra 40 because it was an inkjet with a CPU, RAM,
and color postscript. It is over 10 years old and still works, to this
day. Cartridges can still be found. 12a1970 and 12a1980

My color laser, a QMS (now Konica-Minolta) is 5 years old and
standards-based (PCL5). Works like a charm. No, I don´t print a lot, a
dozen pages per month.
