Macworld Buying Advice
If you print in any sort of volume, the ongoing costs for any model in the M451 product line will hurt you eventually - especially if you print lots of colour. Alternatives in this price range include the Dell 2150cdn and Brother HL-4570CDW; the latter's high-yield supplies are much less expensive than the M451dn's.
