    I have PC desktop and a Powerbook and I would like to share one printer between the both of them. What I would like to do is connect the printer via USB to the PC and be able to print from the powerbook. Anyone had any experience/sucess doing this?

    It lets you put the printer on the network so it's not connected to just one computer, that way both computers don't have to be on to print.

    I have something like this (it's made for HP, and doesn't use rendezvous) for my Laser Jet 1200, and it works much better than having the printer hooked up directly to a computer.
