    Looking for a new printer and figured I might as well get an iOS supported one.. Any advice?

    I purchased an HP D110a for cheap and I have had no issues.

    I think that's probably the HP C410a, which is a photo multifunction with duplex ADF and individual inks.

    But it doesn't print discs, like my C309a, which doesn't have AirPrint.

    Now, the C309a jammed when I tried to duplex scan some papers, I was right not to trust it with originals.

    Crap, I forgot to say it has to be a Bluetooth or wifi printer. I don't have room for it next to my computer so the printer has to be in a different room..

    I have Brother printers and I like the way they work. I'm reluctant to go back to HP so I looked around and found a way to (allegedly) make airprint work with any printer. It's called airprint activator. I haven't tried it yet but I plan to give it a shot in the next day or two.

    Are HP printers the only brand with Air Print? Or is there another way to print wirelessly from an iPhone.

    The C410a has WiFi, but not Bluetooth, another downgrade from the C309a.

    Ah I see. Sorry to be a little noobish in this area, but if it is wifi supported, then does it really matter that it doesn't have Bluetooth? I mean I still won't have to boot on my computer or anything for it to print from my idevice, right?

    The Bluetooth would be useful to print from some other phone or some cameras. I don't use it.

    I second that...

    This printer is AirPrint enabled, too. Got it for $39.99 with a coupon on newegg.com.

    Been looking at this one. People recommend me a laser printer though. Is this one laser? And if not, then what makes laser so much better?
