Hi All,

        I need help in purchasing a cheap ink jet printer for my 486 clone
desktop.  HP is selling their DeskJet for $299.00 and likewise, I can buy
a Canon BubbleJet printer at the same price.  These are different
printers for different purposes.  So far, I've noticed the following

                                                                                                DeskJet                                         BubbleJet
Portability:                    No                                                                                      Yes
Cartridges                              larger capacity
Paper handling  better
DPI                                                                             300                                                                     360

  Could anyone tell me the quality of these printers?  Which one would
make a better workhorse.  I'm looking into speed and quality of print.
Any advice is welcomed and much needed.

Thanks in advance for the help.
