Jeremy and Heather:
I understand the newer models now have a combo ink 
cartridge/printerhead that is replaced at the same time.....
It's got two screen-like nozzle-thingies in the machine. From the 
pictures on the box, it looks like just one unit (with the little 
handle). Does it come with two separate parts that are replaced?
Thanks for your advice.
Linda
