Huh.  I wish I could find a 4500DN for $100.  It could probably replace
both of the printers I have now.

Ceva had a 4500.  Everyone complained that it was slow and took a long
time to start up.  I used it several times and found it no slower than
any other laser printer I'd used.  I think they were just into the
instant-gratification thing.
