If you are looking for an all in one I just set up a brother MFC-6480CW. 
Not only does it work well, it also prints and scans 11 X 17. It also 
was a whole lot easier to get up and working with ubuntu than it was 
with the window Xp machine.

I currently am working on an issue with a HP laserjet 4250. It will not 
affect most people but if you print from the command lines it ignores 
CUPS -o options for postscript files things like turning duplex on and 
off. As long as you want the default options or print from things like 
Open Office it is fine. Of course this printer also loses options from 
windows if you use the postscript driver instead of the pcl driver.

The site well allow you to check everything out before 
you buy. Also our local Office Max lets you return items for 15 days so 
you can make sure you are happy with how it prints.
