Any cannon or HP printer should suite you then. If you only need it to print documents and or basic photos then I would just to to my local dealer and pick up a nice HP model, I know they carry them.

you will actually spend a lot more on ink with inkjet printers than a laser printer
I suggest maybe a B&W laser for about $300 AUS (or about $180 US)
they are very high quality and inexpensive to buy AND run - the ink rolls cost more but they last hundreds of times longer than an inkjet cartridge, and end up saving you $

Printers have an inverse relationship when it comes to cost of printer and consumables (Ink Cartridges, Toner)

The cheaper the printer, the higher the Ink cartridge... (Ink won't last long either)

If you spend a little more on a printer, you save MUCH more on your consumables.

Ink Jet - needs cartridges every few months

Laser Jet - Maybe twice a year

The main thing to consider is cost of cartridges. go to a website like http://www.theinkstop.com.au and checkout the prices for cartidges then make your decision from there.
