    I'm looking for a good, relatively inexpensive (or as inexpensive as you can get) Wi-Fi color laser printer. Do these exist? I realize I could buy an Ethernet printer and hook it up to, say, an AirPort Express, but let's assume, for all intents and purposes, that I'd rather not do that.

    I'd prefer a brand that doesn't automatically cut off the toner when it reaches a certain number of pages (so I guess that eliminates HP and Lexmark unless they've stopped doing it).

    Suggestions?

    It's cheaper if you buy a normal laser printer (USB or parallel port, not networked), and then get a wireless print server that connects to the USB or parallel port. Built-in networking options on printer always cost a huge premium.

    From what I've seen, you're probably looking at dropping $1700 on what you're looking for.
    You could pull it off for $400 doing it the Airport way... but it's your money.

    I have a Belkin WAP hooked up to a 10/100 switch, which is hooked up to my Lexmark C510. More cables, more power supplies, less cost.

    There are printers that are bluetooth capable. Assuming you have a bluetooth enabled mac, you may want to consider that option.
