As one of my favorite movies says, "Color is prettier."
What will you be printing, @evilmike , and how long does it need to last?
Laser printers are king for text/forms/office docs/etc. and fused toner is long-lasting, but if you're going to be printing primarily photos, you'll want something capable of a wider gamut.
A quick-n-dirty search suggests the $300 Epson XP15000 would be better if you're primarily interested in printing photos, though I have no idea how expensive it would be to feed over time.
