    i am in very awkward situation.
    i have old dell desktop (without monitor), lexmark all in one printer (which does not support Mac OS), Samsung laser printer (which also does not support Mac OS), Windows Laptop and a NEW iMac with wireless broadband router.

    Question is because the old printers are not compatible with new imac, I need some solution to print and scan.

    My options are:

    - Connect old printers to desktop PC tower and connect PC tower to router via ethernet and use printers via sharing.

    - Connect printers to windows laptop as needed but this restricts the use.

    - Get rid of the two printers and desktop tower (which is not needed for anything else) and buy a new wireless all in one printer which works over both mac and windows. I can get £30 for the old desktop at local trader but nothing for printers as they are deemed worthless.

    Can anyone help to come to conclusion.

    I got this the other day from amazon HP Deskjet F4580 All-in-One Printer works a charm and is quite a good price.
