Let's be honest: when was the last time you used an inkjet printer to its full 1200 DPI printing potential? Yeah, probably not too often if you're the typical user. With a general migration of image sharing via Facebook, Twitter and mobile messaging, printing boderless high quality photos isn't nearly as common as before. Most printouts are for text docs, maybe directions or a Google map. This is when a stand alone, small laser printer makes more sense.
