Inkjet or Laserjet for printing lots of high quality photos?

I print quite a few photos and I currently have an inkjet printer that does a great job in quality but the ink runs out fairly quickly so I was looking into Laser printers but I can't seem to get a clear answer on if a Laser printer can print high quality photos like an inkjet can. I use Kodak premium photo paper for my pictures.
If there is a difference in print quality then how big is the difference?

I want to correct one thing. A "laserjet" is a brand. Like "pepsi". HP makes laser printers under the Laserjet name, and they are not great at good color. They are much cheaper to operate than ink printers.

A laser printer will cost you much less to operate, but most of the time the images are not great. A laser printer with good/great image quality will cost you 4 arms and 3.5 legs. They print at higher dpi (dots per inch) than an inkjet, but because they are so precise, and the toner is so microscopic, you can actually see the dots if you look closely enough.

Inkjet printers always cost more to operate, but ink leaves a sheen wich gives more of a glossy appearance. Also because ink is a liquid, it smears and expands slightly on the page, causing a dithering effect. In essence this means, you cant see the dots as easily. Also this gives an appearance of smoothness. laser printers give a very sharp image. Six to eight color printers exist in the ink world and those eliminate the need to color match a monitor. What you see on your screen is very close to what you get. Epson usually has the best inkjets.

There is however a hybrid option. Its called Solid ink. It uses a wax based ink. The ink is waterproof. Normal inkjet ink is not. They are cheaper to operate than normal inkjets, without the extra consumables of Laser pritners. The quality is middle of the road.

Edit: If you get a solid ink printer DO NOT PUT AFTERMARKET CHEAP INK IN IT. Unlike a normal inkjet, if you kill the printhead in this with bad ink, Its not a cheap fix, and the warranty wont cover it! Only use XEROX ink in it.
