A Pile of Printers

I need a new printer. I just bought a new Dell (you can read about that ordeal) and now my HP PSC2210r doesn’t work anymore. I’ve tried getting new drivers, I’ve tried getting old drivers, I’ve tried some 3rd party drivers. I think it’s fried or something.

Well, eventually with some driver tweaking I got it to print but not scan. Now I need ink. A quick trip to Sams Club shows that I can get a new all in one printer for cheaper than new ink. Which seems like a good idea.

So here’s the problem: With printers being cheaper than ink, how long until our landfills are nothing but a pile of perfectly fine printers?
