Epson Stylus 4000 or Minolta Magicolor 7300?

Question

In our office we're going to upgrade the good old Epson Stylus 3000 to a new printer, capable of A3+ printing in color.

It's the only printer in a 5-Macintosh office, and we use it for everything from b/w email to A3 photos and CAD renderings.

We're going to decide between upgrading to the Epson 4000 c4 (inkjet) and a color laser, the Konica Minolta Magicolor 7300.

Both have pros and cons. The color rendering is excellent on the epson, but the price per copy is higher than the Minolta laser. BTW we made some demo prints on both and the Minolta seems unable to render subtle shades of sky (the gradient is not continuous, and the colors are "stepped").

Would like to get advices from users of this web board.

thanks

This may be too late, but if you draw with "overlay" transparent layers you may want to check that these actually print out. If you have bought the new A3 printer and it does print transparent layers ok - what make and model is it? thanks

makn,

we finally bought an Epson 4000. Seems to be friendly to the mixed Mac OSX/OS9 and VW 11 environment, but not yet got into details.

I'll keep posting.
