    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a multifunction printer for my iMac. It will be mainly used for school work(printing pictures and essays). I want a reliable printer that won't chew through ink too fast. My budget is around $AU100-150. I'm guessing Canon would be good?

    The Canon MP610 appears to be out of your budget in Oz. I don't know if you can find it any cheaper than this:

    http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/76147/Printers/Canon/MP610.asp

    I initially recommended it because here in Japan you can get it now for about the equivalent of $150-$170 AUD and it is a great multifunction printer/scanner.

    I own the MP960 which I love but my only complaint with it is it is slooooow to start up. They've since come out with the MP970 I'm told and cured that problem. That one I know would be over the budget you've mentioned though.

    MP610 is in the top 3 multifunction printers in Japan at present and very well reviewed.

    Get a Canon!

    If you really need a reason why, then I'll tell you.

    I am a salesman for Canon, so you can help me save my breath.

    However, if you really need a reason, then I will tell you why Canon makes great products.

    Canon MP610 and love it. Bought it with Mac Mini and got the $100 rebate on it. Ink seems to go slow, has two black inks.

    Yeah but you waste a lot of ink with those printers because they don't have multiple color cartridges.
