A used, ethernet-capable, postscript laserprinter.  Possibly a higher
up-front cost, but generally higher performance, and better quality, as
well as far-lower operating costs, than inkjets.

HPLJ4 or better should do you well.  Used ~$300, but as noted the
operating costs are lower than inkjet ($40/cartridge or so).
