Close to two years ago I picked up a HP Laserjet CP1525nw for around $150
US when it was on sale.  Ethernet and wireless connectivity.  I don't know
of any toner cartridges that are cheap, but then again I don't print all
that much (and when I do it's mostly black and white).

The last time I set up printing on a Linux machine I used the generic HP
PCL6 driver (whereas before I chose a LJ15xx driver).

At work we have a hodge podge of HP [older] Laserjets, Ricoh, and Xerox.
