Let’s go for the 499th post on this blog!
For the very first purchase, most of us usually choose The Complete Ultimate Computer Package which comprises of the monitor, cpu, mouse and all those stuffs given away as “free gifts” and, and and… The Printer…. either the simple one or the “10 in one” printer which can be used for everything; from calling your friends to making photocopies.
Yes, the printer works wonderfully well for some time until the ink gets over or worst; “Ou lencre ine sek missier, akoz ou pas fine servi printer la souvent!” And its only then that you find out that replacing the cartridges is really costly… You either end up buying another printer with 2 new cartridges or remain printer-less for the rest of your life, happily! No more headache about paper jams, neither any worries about how to keep the device alive.
I believe that more than 1/2 of us do not bother buying another printer. Because with time, you realise that you can live without it. Printing a document costs only about Rs2 per page but there’s always a cheaper alternative : Your neighbour or next door cousin!
My first (and last) printer lasted for less than 2 years and I was lucky that I did not encounter any major problems with it. I still don’t remember if it broke down or I threw it away when I no more needed it. And I can say that I am not interested to buy another one…
Today, I wanna how many among you (still) have (or not?) a printer… as simple as that!
