Disruptive technology?

According to Engadget, HP has a whizzy new printer that’s a sort of combination between an inkjet, and the line printers which even I am only just old enough to remember. But there’s a catch…

The Edgeline system is apparently so ink-efficient that HP can’t sell the units at competitive prices and make up the difference on consumables sales like it does with its inkjet and laser products. Instead, HP will rent the printers to high-volume customers, with a typical contract running for four years at 20,000 pages per month.
