Hi List,

I'd really appreciate some recommendations for colour laser printers for 
use with CentOS. It's for light home use with CentOS 5 and CentOS 6 systems.

Must have:

1. Colour. Quality not that important as mainly for kids school project 
type of stuff.
2. Ethernet connectivity - want something I can plug into the network
3. Cheap running costs - don't want to be spending a fortune on toner
4. Linux support

I have very little experience with printing on Linux. I'm assuming I 
want a laser with Postscript and/or PCL emulation, and Linux driver 
support (still not sure exactly what I should be looking for here).

Top of my very short list at present is:

Brother HL-4140CN at £167

I'd appreciate any other recommendations people might have.

Thanks!
