    You can call them "war hummers", because the "war tank" was the HP III 
:o) It **is** bomb-proof, made to last decades (!). The HP4 isn't the 
"last". The HP 5 is also a good printer (more beautiful, infrared printing, 
newer) but it stops there. HP forgot how to made durable printers on the 
5L/6L line. The 1000 series are good printers, but all-plastic and no RIP 
inside, you depend on the PC for everything. How can I connect my HP1662A 
logic analyzer if there is no serial port? :oO
