Mac has had 2 printers sitting on his desk for awhile and though he has tried everything to get them to work they don't. The problem has been the ink cartridges, and he has Googled the problem, and tried everything suggested for it seems that his problem is not uncommon. But still he couldn't get the printers to work. I kept saying buy a new one, but he just kept using mine instead. Then yesterday when we were at Walmart he saw that they had an HP printer he'd had his eye on and it had been marked down to $29.95 so he bought it. The ink cartridge replacements for it are $30.00, so he laughingly said that when the ink ran out he'd just buy a new printer. I don't know if he's kidding.
