There is a shareware app called Printopia that makes any network printer an Airprint printer. I would consider that before I would consider buying a printer just because it supported Airprint.

Brother laser printers with AirPrint would be a dream come true.

They *JUST* came out with a AirPrint-compatible printer... and it's an inkjet. *barf*

Alas, for now, one of those AirPrint hacks or a HP laser printer is your best options, IMO.

Printopia works great for me as well, it has saved me from buying another printer just for my iPad/iPhone. I don't think it was stated above, but it is Mac only.

Of course, my next printer will be an AirPrint supported printer, but it is nice to delay the purchase for a few years until my printer wears out on it's own.

I bought a Deskjet 3050A, Airprint, cheap ink and only paid £35 in the UK. It also scans and copies.

It was so cheap that buying just one replacement high capacity ink cartridge for my old printer would have cost more than the 3050A which came with two standard cartridges.

HP printers with cartridges only contain about 30% of the ink a normal cartridge would contain.
