If you're looking for a printer mainly for text and graphics that can deliver near-photo-quality pix, consider the Epson Stylus Color 800 at $449. It turns out up to eight monochrome text pages per minute; up to seven in color. It can print high-res images on plain paper, though the quality is better on special stock. Like the Stylus Photo, the 800 supports Windows and Mac. A $99 software upgrade for either printer provides for professional color matching and finer control of type quality.
