I don't know what their current models are, but i'm a big fan of HP.  I
have a LaserJet 1022 and an OfficeJet Pro L7380.  They have both been
flawless with Ubuntu.  With those models, you would need to either
connect them to your server (cheap & easy) or get a networked version
(easy, but more expensive).  In my experience, with home offices it's
hard to justify the extra cost for the networked version.
