Cheap laser printers and Ubuntu

I've been looking into a new printer, and Albert Charron's message about
printers made me think that maybe I should ask the list about
recommendations :)

I'm looking for a cheap (less than $150) laser printer that'll work well
with Ubuntu... I've narrowed it down to the Brother HL-2040 and the HP
LaserJet 1018. However, the HL-2040 seems to have non-Linux-related
problems of its own. I was wondering if anyone who reads this list can
tell me anything about these printers, and their experience using them
with Ubuntu. If there's a printer that anyone thinks I should check out,
tell me about that too, I'm open to recommendations.
