Recommended wifi printer/scanner for 10.6

I need fast, double sided printing over wifi (b/g) with good support in 10.6.

Doesn't have to be a great photo printer, but I do need colour. Scanner needs to be good enough for docs.

I'd prefer it to work well with built-in software and not come encumbered with ancient clunky software that needs Rosetta.

I've currently got separate Cannon scanner/HP printer, but neither work well with 10.6 (eg no duplex printing on the HP).

Would appreciate up-to-date advice as most info out there on the interweb is vague or for 10.5.

You might want to take a look at Wifi enabled color Laser printers then. They're not meant for photo's, but color documents (non critical color, such as color graphs within documents,...).

Brother makes a model that would suit you, MFC-9480CDW.
MFC = Multi-Function Copier
C = Color
D = Duplexing
W = Wireless

Supplies are competitively priced too (better than HP).

Just got this printer last week. It was easy to install, and I'm very impressed so far. Running on an OS 10.6 iMac 21.5".
