There are many factors affecting the decision of whether to use a laser or inkjet printer. Onebig factor is the cost difference between the two, especially the cost per printed page.

In the past, the cost per page difference between laser and inkjet printers has been heavily in favour of laser printers. Inkjet cartridges ran out quickly and were costly to replace.
Cost of Cartridges
Many consumers look solely at the cost of cartridges. Laser printers have cartridges that can cost quite a bit, but they generally produce far more printed pages than an inkjet print cartridge.
Companies such as Kodak and HP have begun offering cheaper inkjet refills that also yield a higher number of printed pages, lowering their cost per page significantly.
Colour printing has been much cheaper to do on a laser printer, but some newer inkjet printers have become more economical on a per-page cost because of separate cartridges for different colour inks.
When looking for a printer, many manufacturers and independent rating websites will give a cost-per-page analysis of both laser and inkjet printers (see the "Reference" section for examples of such websites).
