Suggest a good color inkjet printer for school projects


Date: 27 Jan 2016    Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Accessories   

I want to buy a color inkjet printer for my kid's school projects. I prefer inkjet because it is cheaper. Laser printers are very expensive when it comes to color. Black and white laser is cheap but I want color to take printouts of school projects for the children.

Please suggest some good color inkjet printers.
