    I'm looking for an inexpensive wireless printer to hookup with our laptop. Any suggestions? It doesn't have to do anything fancy, just print (B&W and color). Under $100 def; under $70 or so even better. Danke.

    All I can say is: don't get an HP. Their quality has gone down the tubes.

    Agreed. We have an HP (our second or third actually) and it sucks.

    we love our epsom. the one we have is the fax, scanner, copier, printer, but you can probably get just the printer for a pretty good price.

    Just a note - wireless printers are a substantial security risk.
    If you print any sensitive documents, or business related materials - a wireless printer is a no-no. Many come with no security enabled at all, and those that do the security is so weak it is a mere annoyance to anyone who would tap into it.
    If security is not an issue...then ignore this. :eusa_angel:

    Ive always found canon to be the best for me but ive never used one wirelessly, even though the one I have now is capable of it

    Probably more than capable - the wireless portion of it is likely broadcasting even though you don't use it.
