LASER FAIRE

When color laser printers showed up last year, the pricey units were more impressive for their speed and ability to print in volume than for print quality. That's changing with a new generation: The Color LaserJet 5 series from Hewlett-Packard (800 752-0900), starting at $6,000, can print color images at the equivalent of 1,200 dots per inch without the graininess or color bands of earlier models. The printer turns out black-only pages at 10 per minute, color at 2 or 3 a minute. HP says the cost of toner and developer is as low as 9 cents for a typical color page.
