    Default What's the difference between inkjet and laser printers?

    Do they both use ink cartridges? Is one better than the other in terms of print quality?

    an inkjet deposits tiny drops of ink onto the paper. a laser printer deposits tiny drops of laser onto the paper. that's why you must be careful never to get laser printed paper in your eyes.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Well actually Laser printer only statically charges tiny dot on the paper, then toner powder is attracted and sticks to it and heat melts the toner to the paper

    Come on guys. This is a simple troll thread. Someone asks a silly question, and watches the reactions. No need to elaborate on laser printers, LOL.

    If he really wanted info any search engine would give him everything he needed, and more.

    Hang about a while longer and you will eventually find that some of these troll/bot threads turn out to be pretty useful. I decided what headphones I want thanks to bot posting spam and the ensuing conversation.
