    ..

    I brought mine down so that I could use it just in case I need to print something at home and don't really want to walk to the library or if the library printers are running slow or are broken.

    Dont use it on a consistent base since you get $14.00 worth of free prints each week which is at least 100 print outs if not more.

    I'll be selling mine when I leave this april (brand new HP color copier, fax, scanner)

    You get $14.00 a week, it gets recharged every Sunday. 10 cents per page so you get 140 pages per week.

    useful

    My son brought a printer to Dominica and is still using the same printer in Miami. Its not a necessity but it is nice to have. Just make sure you bring extra ink cartridges to the Island. Also try to put bullewrap around the printer and clothes aaround it to protect it in the luggage. Make sure it is small and lightweight.
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!

    printer

    do you print more than the 140 pages per week? do you find you have to print a lot or is most if the work you do out of your books and class notes?

    bring a printer if you want.

    but there's a 99% chance that you will use it less than 1% of the time.

    Portable printer options

    Ya..most likely I will never use it since they give most of your notes printed out already I assume ??
    However...it would be nice to have for one of those few times when you need something pronto at home... the most compact printer I found was Canon i80 on the web for about $150. There are several options by HP and Canon if you do a search for portable or mobile printers on on the web. For the ultimate technophile there is the Pentax mobile printer which is the size of a stapler (roughly) and prints on full size pages. But the disadvantage is the cost ($400 ...ouch) and I think it uses Thermal printing on thermal paper....if it wasnt for the thermal printing I would have gone for it

    ..slight correction...the lowet price on CNET.com for the canon i80 was $178 US...so far its the best deal out there for the size....but always read the product reviews before you click the "buy" button..lol
