    Apple used to make their own printers. My new iMac, keyboard, mouse, look stunning on my desk. Problem is, I gotta get some damn printer that clashes. Yeah, it's superficial, but I wish Apple still made printers. Printers are not small devices. It would be very nice if I could get one that truly "matched" the rest of my Apple gear.

    If only Apple offered at least merely cosmetically adjusted versions of printers made by other manufacturers :D

    I have a Dell printer. Is there any possibility of finding a driver for that printer that would work on a mac?

    Well if you tell us what model it is maybe we can find you a driver

    I still wish they did make them again. Then I would be a happy person :D

    I think canon printers are very pretty, and they work reasonably well, too!

    Have the paper feed from the bottom, keep the top paper feeder closed, and spraypaint it white or something. It's a cube. :)

    I have an ip4300 and an ip3000. Both play nicely with Airport and my Macs. :)

    My father has one of the oldest ones. Seeing how big it was, I'm glad they stopped ;)

    I personally have a HP deskjet that has a brushed aluminum enclosure that matches my MBP perfectly, and I'm sure I've seen some white plastic ones recently

    Dell printer use lexmark print engine so I would search for that. As it being an all in one I never found one that works with all the features

    I have an iP5200R and it doesn't play with airport at all, despite the 'R' in its name. I ended up connecting through an Ethernet network.

    Err, maybe I should rephrase:
    Both played nicely when I plugged them into my AirPort Express.

    Neither of the printers I named have built-in wireless capability. Sorry if I was unclear. :eek:
