    My current setup is an AirPort express with a PIXMA iP8500, if I grabbed a LaserJet 1020, could I plug a USB hub in the AirPort Express, and network them both at once?

    Is the LJ even Mac friendly?

    OK, here is the deal. HP does not support the LJ 1020 on MacOS X. This printer is not completely operational using the Linux Foundation's OpenPrinting CUPS driver. The printer is, however, supported [somewhat] under Linux by the opensource but HP-sanctioned HP Linux Imaging and Printing project. How one would get the required software to work under MacOS X is something that you will have to work out.
