Re: debian: Recommendation for scanner/printer/fax/copier
Try the Brother MFC-9600. It's a great value for the money. It's a
laser printer, copier, and fax in one for only about $600 US. It's not
network ready so you would have to hook it up to either a PC or one of
those small HP JetDirect PrintServers. I don't think it has native
postscript (that always seems to cost a lot more). I shopped around
looking at HP, Xerox, Cannon and others, but nobody put the complete
package (with laser) together for a price anywhere near the Brother
model. That was about 6 mo. ago so there may be some newer models out
there, but I doubt it.

I'm running an Apple Titanium G4 and an Intel Pentium-II machine (both

also like to be able to do photocopies. I could use a computer to scan
then print but that can be a bit inefficient. I was thinking of an all
in one unit that HP, Cannon or maybe Brother produce. Are there any
recommendations from other Linux users.
I would prefer a Laser printing engine but they seem harder to come by.
I would also prefer a printer with inbuilt postscript (I always have
seem to have problems with ghostscript). I think USB is the way to go
though an ethernet connection would be even better.
If there is nothing suitable then recommendations on individual products
would be greatly appreciated.
