I wouldn't buy a color printer at all.
I assume, every decent college has some sort of print-shop on the campus
where you can make high-quality color printouts for pennies.
For black&white, I'd buy a decent laser printer.
Personally, I don't own a printer anymore since finishing university - I
print everything (usually a couple of pages per month) at work.
If I'd have to buy one now, I'd look for an appropriate Brother model.
They seem to have decent support for Linux.


cheers,
Rainer
