    Going to purchase an i7 iMac in the next couple of weeks with educational discount. Not sure which printer to get, I would like it to be wireless though.
    What would you recommend? Thinking of getting now as you get the rebate.

    Thanks

    I ordered the epson stylus sx515w after reading a few reviews. This printer generally gets more 'points' in comparison to the HP Photosmart Wireless aio. Unfortunately, its shipping estimate is 1-2 weeks (constraint, see other topics). Luckily, it's possible to contact Apple and have them ship everything except for the printer so the rest doesn't get delayed. This is for Europe, i don't know if that printer have shipping problems in the USA.

    Found that Canon seem to have the most "Mac-friendly" printers.

    I would second this printer. I haven't actually used it, but you can find some really cheap compatible cartridges for it - so in my book that makes it a keeper!

    I'd make sure you get a wireless printer. Since everything else on the iMac is wireless(Mouse, keyboard) you don't want an ugly printer cable coming out of it. A wireless printer is definitely the way to go.
