Laser is imho recommended both when you print much (>10 pages a day) and when
you print very little (~10 print-jobs a year).
The advantage of laser for high-volume doesn't need to be told, but for very
low volume a laser is at an advantage too: You can completely disconnect the
printer when not using it. With an inkjet you have the choice of unplugging
the printer (and have the print-head dried out when you need to print that
urgent document due tomorrow morning), or leave it connected to the mains and
use power constantly to regularly keep the ink running a little. Needless to
say that this consumes power and ink in times where you are not printing at
all. And one filling of laser-toner last longer than one filling of ink (general
statement abstracted from any printer models).
So, if you have the choice and don't need to print colors that much, get a
laser to print your sheets, cd inlets or backup-tape-logs.
And to emphasize what fred says, the fastest and cheapest and greenest
printing job is not printing at all.
