Color tabloid printer (11x17) under 3K

Hi. We are looking for a high-quality laser color printer that prints tabloid size (11x17) and costs under $3K, and does not have a outrageous cost per print price. There seems to not be a whole lot of options out there since we do need the tabloid size. Any guidance on solid printers that fit this criteria would be greatly appreciated.

What I do...

When it comes to business sometimes its best to use the local talent. Check into the local copier/printer service centers/shops that cater to this. Depending on your size city/town you should have some business doing nothing but. They point out this&that and provide probable working demos, etc. of operation and of course any costs to include maybe a service contract(if required). I suggest you look into Konica and/or Canon models, though I'm sure HP is there also. Mentioning such brands, also allows you to visit the support websites of each to review what's offered. I find Konica in many heavy usage business where one or two become the norm. As for toner upkeep, see if local can service/refill what maybe in your buying future.
