Default Got a new toy.



Couldn't help myself. President'* day sale and my employee discount combined took this down to $109. My old one is tired, and doesn't have a preview screen (photosmart100, first in the series. I won it in a raffle at work years ago).

This little sucker comes in handy at meets. I typically check out a couple from work for use during WCBF at the KOA, but this time I think I'll just bring my own. It can go to the dragstrip with us, cuz I'm thinking about getting the battery also. 4x6 and 5x7 paper, too.

Too cool with the stylus and touchscreen to add captions and other embarrassing attributes to pics right before printing. Imagine the fun we can have with this.

Okay, that'* COOL. I'm starting to think they give you employee discounts just to make us jealous though...

Any rough estimate on the price per print it works out to? Paper/ink expense?

Is that with the current President'* day sale, or did it end? The battery price is pretty low right now too.

I just checked. President'* day sale is still going on. Your discount may not be as deep when it ends. Not bad though. You got within 5 bucks of me.

We have 'channel partners'. I get the same discounts at Sony as they get from HP.
