After reading reviews on decent colour laser printers I decided to opt for the HP 2605dn which is network ready and can print duplex out of the box.
If you buy the printer and an extra set of all 4 toners at the same time HP will give you a £175 rebate. You have to send off a copy of your reciept which must show the printer and extra toner bought at the same time to qualify for the rebate.

I have been looking all day and Misco have the cheapest price on the printer, so with the extra toner you are paying £507.57 inc vat but excluding delivery.
With the £175 rebate it comes to £332.79 inc vat.
Dont forget the 6% quidco on this too totalling just over £25 (as it is calculated on the price ex vat & delivery), which i have not included in this price.
So thats the printer and an extra set of toner for £332.79 ex delivery and ex quicdo.
This deal runs out on the 31st October 2007 and all claims must be made within 30 days after purchase.
Delivery looks like £11.16 (5 + 4.50 + VAT) so the immediate total to pay appears to be £518.75 so £343.75 after HP cashback with a potential £25.92 via Quidco until 30 September and £21.60 thereafter (when it returns to 5%).
For comparison though, Amazon.co.uk's initial price is £493.58 so £318.58 after HP cashback.
