    How about this all in one printer/copier/scanner? My sister and mom use it and they find it awesome (sister being a photography student) Just helping here.

    I was kind of leaning towards a stand alone for the size, but, if the scanner is just as good, and has a good user interface and program, i guess i'll just grab an all in one. anyone else?

    hp once are guite good, 4010 is amazing, but it is big. Its one of the best affordable once i have seen it is 160, but i have seen it on sale forr 109. Still if you would like like a basic scaner, go for all it one, hp c4180 is quite good, then 5610 is good, but ugly as hell.

    thwy are fairly basic, you can simply use preview to scan the images, just go to file and import, after get the to iphoto and do some editing. are you looking for OCR reader btw?

    No, I don't need one. I just need a pretty decent scanner for my art, and it needs to be able to scan high resolutions (like 600 DPI, or much higher), because I am working on a comic that i pan to publish.
