Cheapest may not be cheap

I bought an Epson CX4600 for $100 just before Xmas.

In printing less than 100 sheets of paper, I used over $60 of ink.

If you print 400 sheets a day, the ink cost per sheet appears may not be that high, according to the 'tests'

But if you only print 3 sheets a day, you will pay.

It ain't the initial cost, its the upkeep. I suggest you check around.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
