    I need help choosing a printer for my iMac.

    I would like an all-in-one printer with scanner and the ability to print good quality photos. Price doesn't really concern me, but running costs do.

    Any recommendations?

    Thank you kindly.

    Well i guess there aren't many decent printers out there...

    I can't recommend a model, but a Mac-compatible HP is a safe bet IMHO. I was extremely impressed with how my colour laser at work 'just worked' with all the Mac's with absolutely zero set up.

    For photo printing, you can't look beyond Canon in my opinion.

    I also think the ink lasts longer than Epsons.

    No experience with HP.

    Has anyone tried the new Canon MP970 All-in-One?

    It's just out and looks like it could fit the bill.

    It's a gorgeous printer that's attracting a lot of attention, but correct me if I'm wrong, it's a monochrome laser, non? How does it even vaguely meet the OP's criteria?

    To the OP, I know it can be frustrating to not get responses, but I would seriously suggest going to C|Net or a similar site for something like this. I know the reputation that C|Net has here, but asking a bunch of people on a forum to give you feedback on TCO, which is on your list of important attributes, is a waste of time. No one on this forum uses enough printers and runs enough print jobs through them to be able to accurately estimate the TCO differences between brands or models or provide reliable input on that topic. That's exactly what professional reviews are good for.
