What is the difference between an inkjet and a laser printer?

"The biggest difference between these two types of printer is the technology. An inkjet printer places extremely small droplets of ink on the paper. Because the ink is liquid, the printhead can dry out over time. Regular printing is needed to prevent this. A laser printer applies toner (black or coloured powder) to the paper. The powder can't dry out, making regular printing unneccesary. Also, on average laser printers work faster than inkjet printers."
