Yes, Lasers are cheaper to run, and the outlay at the beginning isn't so
hugely different compared to what it used to be.  Even colour lasers are
reasonably priced now, but I know it is text printing you are interested
in.  I think paying a couple of hundred poundes, or $400.00 for a laser
will probably get you a faster printer too if printing large documents is

the only obvious drawback for me is a laser won't print onto CDs, so if
that's important then an ink jet is necessary.  Don't forget though that
the running cost of an ink jet can be reduced by a third or >more by
buying from a good supplier of compatible cartridges.  I think it is
asking for trouble to go to the blokes who refill cartridges from syringes
or how ever they get the ink in.
