    I just got a Mac Mini, which I really like, and I discovered that the Lexmark X2470 printer we just bought a few weeks before doesn't work with Mac OS X. I'm afraid that if I can't get it to work, my family will have to go back to using a PC because of a certain individual... Anyway, has anyone had any luck with other drivers or anything? I really don't need the scanning part extremely, but the printing part is really important. Thanks for any help!

    return the lexmark if you bought it retail and buy HP AIO (All in One) printer :) :)

    I would suggest returning it and getting a cannon all in one.

    Unlike the poster above I am not a big fan of HP printers.

    There's always GIMP Print. But it's not that great and it's still no excuse for using a Lexmark pirnter. All the one's I had in my life worked like **** with my Macs. I got an HP AIO and it's been good to me very much. If the printer is out of the 30 day return policy (or whatever policy there was) sell it on eBay, because you're gonna be lookin at a world of heartache in the future with that thing.
