    So are there currently any laser printers with this feature available? Or if not now, any work when there will be?

    Huh? If you put ANY printer on the X.2 network, rendezvous will see it, that's how it works. You don't need to buy a printer with any special features to use rendezvous.

    I think I read an article recently (at maccentral?) noting that HP was introducing a revamped line of personal laserprinters that would include bluetooth servers. (Upgrades to 1200 and 2200 lines). They may have also been introducing some inkjets with similar upgrades.

    (edited to correct recollection -- it's bluetooth, although I didn't see the actual server on the hp site yet).

    even when i turn on printer sharing in the system prefs, my printer never shows up in the rendezvous section of print center. i've even tried using rendezvous beacon to announce the service and still no luck.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    I believe that Brother is the only printer manufacturer with Rendezvous built into its units, at this moment.
