Can anyone recommend a good color laserjet? This is for business use, so we're looking for one that can stand up to a lot of use but not break the bank.

Thanks...

to be honest, i'm not sure. we don't need anything too fancy; basically, we're looking for a color postscript printer that'll last. i've been looking at a few in the $800 range (the HP 1500, for instance) but i don't know if those are too cheap to be worthwhile, or if we can go even cheaper, or what.

well my macaddict gave the hp 1500 an excellent review and said it was great unless you need postscript. i recommend going and picking up the issue when it comes out and reading it. i would recommend a Xerox laser printer, which they also own tectronix, which also make awesome printers.

postscript is the #1 requirement, unfortunately. guess the 1500 is out.

maybe i should look at inkjets? HP has some less expensive PS-enabled inkjet printers...

HP color laserjet has a MSRP of $799.

They are not as expensive as they used to be...
