It depends on what sort of stuff you do. Unless you actually want to
scan in images there's no reason to have a scanner. Computers, net
connections - these things we can expect people to have access to.
Scanners just aren't so generally useful and it's entirely reasonable to
expect that someone doesn't own one and doesn't know anyone that does.
