    My Sisters family want a printer

    It needs to have

    Air Print

    but most of all can have its inks refilled for less then a 10er (compatibles)

    Thanks for any help

    Agreed, but the AirPrint support on my Canon is a bit limited. There's not an option to directly print documents, only images.

    It all depends if you can get compatibles for what ever wifi printer you buy, my advice is to check before you buy as they do not make them for every printer. It costs me about £20 including p&p for 5x5 full sets[2xblack + 3x colour] of compatible cartridges Canon iP4300.

    I always thought that the Kodak printers were cheaper to run. I have had limited experience but this seems the case compared to Canon and the other major brands

    Any printer that can be connected to a network will have wi-fi by virtue of the router. In most scenarios it's not necessary for the printer to have wi-fi itself.
