Amazingly xerox has a lot of native postscript printers as long as you
are willing to spend around $400 to $500 for a colour laser.

My experience with HP is that when they do support postscript it is
awful slow.  In general I am not impressed with HP products.

I also wouldn't use a laser for photo printing.  That is one place an
inkjet (especially epson's) are hard to beat unless you can afford dyesub.
