    Good inexpensive SOHO laser printer


    Moving into a new office next week with my business partner. We already have a brand new Epson inkjet, which is fine for printing color proofs and the little color printing we do. It also can print directly onto CDs and DVD's, which is cool when wish to give clients CD's with finished products and don't have to worry about labels.

    I want to get a decent laser to print out invoices and other documents because:

    A) Laser looks more professional
    B) Much cheaper long run on price per page.

    We will have a monthly duty cycle of about 1500 pages proably. Right now I can get into a Samsung ML-1710 for about $100, however OSX and the printer seem to have issues. My partner has a brand new 12" G4 powerbook with 10.3 (pre-ordered and picked up today from the local apple reseller) and myself have a 14" iBook with 10.2 with no plans to upgrade any time soon.

    Any other suggestions on a decent quality, low cost laser?
    Why? Because Forms just look cooler in OS X...

    Dutch, it's like German...but not!

    We have an hp laserjet 1150 in the office, which is used for printing invoices and letters and stuff.. it basically serves all the printing needs of a small company. it's compact enough to sit on the desk and we have never had so much as a hint of trouble. It's not networked, but you could easily USB it up to a linux box and run that as a print server.

    btw, what does SOHO stand for?
