"
In February of 1988, HP launched the HP Deskjet, the world's first single-page single-use inkjet printer. At the initial price of $ 995, the first HP Deskjet had an average print speed of 2 pages per minute.

The comparison is made according to the manufacturers' specifications for faster color printing (from March 2012) including MFP color MFP cost of less than € 1.000 and color laser printers costing less than € 800 according to market share as recorded by IDC from the first quarter of 2012 and HP internal controls at the highest available color printing speed (four-page sample ISO 24734 tested) after the first ISO test page package.
