  And a $100 Samsung laser printer here, sold as long ago as 15 months. 
  (Also an expensive color laser copier Ricoh started producing in 2007, 
although I don't know if it shipped with an IPv6-capable firmware.) 
Even printing isn't the last holdout. :-)

  Home entertainment devices, on the other hand... :-(
