Color laser printer

I'll second Robert's suggestion of the Brother HL-4070CDW.  The duplex  
feature is awesome.   It has built-in ethernet and wifi.   At the  
office we have basically the same printer with a scanner/copier  
feature (but without wifi).

I print from OS X, but Brother advertises Linux support ("Linux: Red  
Hat, Mandrake, SuSE, Debian").

When I got mine from Amazon it had some sort of mechanical problem so  
it couldn't pick up paper from the feeder.  I called Brother and they  
1) picked up the phone, 2) sent someone out to look at it 3) sent a  
replacement printer and picked up the broken one.    More and much  
better service than I expected for a <$500 piece of equipment.

This is the first printer I've had in a long time that in robustness  
and "just-works-ness" feels like the old HP LaserJet printers of 15-20  
years ago.
