What do you get when you mashup a laptop and printer?

So in my MBA program, I have been asked to create a radical new invention. Seeing as I'm in the technology industry, I came up with the LaptoPrinter [lap-tow-printer]. How many times have you been on a laptop and wish you had a printer?
The luxury of a laptop allows users to be mobile. With the growth of wireless technology, users no longer need to be "connected" to be online. However, when it comes time to print, you either need to be connected to a local or network printer. While blue-tooth printers allow unconnected printing, there is a 10 ft. maximum range and there are multiple security issues with leaving your laptop open for blue-tooth connectivity.
With the LaptoPrinter, you can print directly from your laptop. The laptop holds up to 10 sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper and can print color and black & white. The LaptoPrinter prints 6 sheets per minute for black & white photo's and 3 sheets per minute for color photo's. The ink cartridges can print about 200 sheets of paper and cost $15. The LaptoPrinter retails for about $1,500.
A good friend of mine even created a LaptoPrinter prototype image for me.
