    In terms of printers there are two kinds that I know of: Inkjet and Laser. Color laser printers are still pretty expensive and bulky so I doubt you will want that. B&W laser printers are great for school and volume printing.

    For Inkjet printers, it depends if you just want a printer or an all-in-one machine. I have experiences w/ both Lexmark and HP, and so far both have disappointed me but HP has redeemed itself with me with the latest machine I have. Epson I heard are also great printers.

    Personally, I'd go with the Lexmark all-in-one center! I got one for my system at home and it's awesome! It can print, scan, copy, fax, and it even has a slot for two memory cards from digital camaras! I've been using it like crazy ever since!

    oops...they saw us...*to you* Hi...you didn't just see that...

    Something you should consider before deciding is how often are you going to use that printer. Both ink jet and laser printers have gone to the 'razor blade' model, where they sell the printer at, or even below the cost of manufacture, but make it up on the profit of refills. Laser printers have a much lower cost per page, but the printer costs more, and the price for those toner cartridges are EXPENSIVE (but will last for hundreds of printed pages). Also, laser printers print at a much higher rate of speed. (My oldest nephew, on my recommendations, purchased a laser printer for college, and found it a distinct advantage printing out those last minute assignments compared to his dorm roomates, who could take a half hour or more printing on a ink jet...) Ink jet printers are more affordable, have superior color output, and the refills cost much less, but at the expense of speed, and more expensive cost per page...

    If your only print out for casual use, get a ink jet, but if your life (or job, or G.P.A.) depends on the output of your printer, make the investment on a laser printer...

    Stay away from lexmark, cartridges are way too expensive, even if you get the no name refills.

    In all actuality, its really cheaper to buy a new printer then get replacement cartridges.
