my last two laser printers have been Brother black&white all-in-ones 
("MFC").   *VERY* cheap per page printing costs, even if you use Brother 
brand toner cartridges.   They make useful copy machines, they are fast 
(22 page per minute, very short first page warmup).  The newer one we 
now have does double sided scanning, and double sided printing.   Both 
of these are ethernet/network printers.   decent linux support for 
printing.   the scanner function can direct email scans in PDF or JPG 
format, so there's no need for linux drivers for scanning.

I have a seperate Canon Pro100 large format color photo printer, this is 
an ink jet, uses 8 seperate color cartridges.  on glossy photo paper, it 
makes photos that look like they came from a pro photo lab with very 
good subtle color rendering and wide gamut range.   fairly expensive per 
page.       Unclear if there's linux support for these (my color 
printing all comes from Windows).
