I got an HP all-in-one recently because my old HP G95 does not have drivers
for Vista. I should have learned my lesson and never bought an HP all-in-one
again. The new printer hardware-wise is very nice but:

        1. The size of the printer cartridges has diminished. I bet I'll
           be buying new ones every month.
        2. The software drivers *suck*. Not only they took more than 1 hour
           to install on vista, they don't work properly. I.e. I can only
           scan one page at a time. Then the driver ends in an infinite loop
