If I order a CU from dell, it comes with a Free printer...Do you have to buy ink from them or is it available at local stores?

To the best of my knowledge, since their contract with HP ended a couple of years ago Dell printers have been made by Lexmark.

Look for the equivalent Lexmark carts.

There lexmark printers but they alter them to force you to buy Dell carts.

When you buy a new printer they all come with what they call a 'test' cartridge. Holds about 1/4 of ink in new cartridge. The Dell cartridges can be refilled at Cartridge World or other commercial refill centers. However, if you refill the 'test' cartridge you will only get the small quantity of ink. You will have to buy a new cartridge from Dell then that one can be refilled at a fraction of the cost of a new one. I was getting my HP cartridtges for the 970cse refilled at less than 1/2 the cost of a new one and the quality was just as good. Ran tests and could not tell the difference. Do lots of photos so now have the Epson with the CIS.
