Any kind of business graphics is MUCH better on color laser. Faster,
bigger trays, and probably lower cost per print when you print a lot.
Like try printing 50 user manuals on an ink-jet... Ouch!

Ink-jets are fine for occasionally printing something, and for pictures
indeed, but around the office?

Question: Would HP Color Laser printers also work when connected through
USB to an Ubuntu PC?   Or is the networked (print server included)
version vastly preferable?
