picture to begin with is that Photoshop time can go to virtually
zero, and Photoshop labor can eat up profits REAL fast. Plus, if I do
decide to use Photoshop for some reason on a technically correct
photo it's easy, natural and quick.

While that's true, the amount of ink in negligible. I own a 13" HP, and
that's not a problem. In fact, I own 3 HP's. The problem is the
quality of the photographic output. I don't own a 7960, so I can't
speak for that. But, there was absolutely no way to get a good b&w
print from any of the HP's I have. I was also put off by their "why are
you bothering me with you photographic needs" attitude. I still prefer
the HP's for office applications.
When I was looking for a large format printer, I at least wanted to see
what HP had to offer. After going to the HP website, I got a call from a
salesman located about 80 miles away. (Yeah, I know that for some, 80
miles is a just a trip to the store, but when three Epson resellers are
less than 10 miles away....) He would demo a printer if I came to see
him. Not knowing whether he was an HP employee or what, I asked him if
there was a location that was closer for a demo. He replied that he was
not in the habit of disclosing his competitors, said to call him if
interested and hung up. I bought a 7600. Eight weeks later, I got a
call from HP following up on the website contact.
I guess the 7960 has a grey cartridge that's only used in that
printer.(so far) Interesting concept.
I wonder what b/w prints look like out of a dye-sub printer?
