My LJ 4 does a "real" 600 dpi, 8 PPM, and has more kinds of network plugin
than you can shake a stick at, currently using a 10/100 bt ethernet that
knows appletalk as well.

Inkjets may make nice color prints, photo quality etc., but since I have
both I can say the major problem is that I use the ink jet so little the
heads tend to dry outrequiring a cleaning cycle which makes ink use
staggering. My inkjet says its some wild 2880 dpi or some such, but it
NEVER has the quality of output the LJ4 does in terms of artifact free,
clean crisp print.

What hurts the old printers is that they are big heavy boxes. (period)

OTOH HP department level printers haven't fundamently changed squat since
the LJ4, faster maybe, but thats about it.
