What's the best Macbook Pro-compatible multifunction laser b/w printer for a single user office? Some reviews of Canon printers mention lack of Mac drivers.


MacBook Pro (17-inch Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Not specifically mentioning Mac drivers is probably not a concern since OS X supports nearly all printers, but I prefer manufacturers that visibly support OS X. I like Brother printers and multifunction devices these days. Their support is top notch.

     

    Read this press release for a description of Brother models that support AirPrint - which is a nice (though not necessary) feature I'd recommend:

    Canon and Epson are OK too, HP is a distant last.

    It IS a concern, canon hasn't updated drivers for my selphy printer so I can't use it.  My Epson multifunction had delayed driver release every time a new mac OS is released.  I'm tired of companies that won't support mac. 

     

    I'm in the market right now for a new multifunction color laser and I'm buying whoever supports mac best.  end of story.
