As a single-function color inkjet printer, the
Pixma iP4700 ($100) produces excellent photos when using Canon’s glossy photo paper. It also handles paper well, with a pair of 150-sheet input trays. It’s USB only, however, so make sure you get a cable. The inks are resonably priced, with pigment black for text at $15 (4.3 cents per page), and each color (syan, yellw, and magenta) at $13 (2.7 cents per color, per page). Photo black, used only with imagesis $13 (2 cents per photo).
