    There are alot of differences that make each unique, mostley the fact that ink-jet are primarily for home/small office. Wheras the laser is geared toward large office, speed, quality and uses toner ink instead of cartridge.

      They are expensive because of the technology they use, Unlike Inkjet, it just shoots out ink from the nozzels to the paper directly, while Laser uses... well laser to shoot onto the paper itself with the ink in it, thats why the quailty is so high, it doesn't smudge, while having precise accuracy.
