After considering price and features of both the HP 2100M and the
Lexmark E31* series, I will most likely get the Lexmark Optra E312. It
is highly recommended by LinuxPrinting.org
(http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=321929), as well
as being recommended by a couple of people on this list, whose word
counts for a lot!

Thanks for the info.
