    I am looking for a new colour laser printer. Can the forum recommend a brand and model?

    Many thanks.

    Please there is only one, IMHO HP 2000.

    One of the things you need to look at is the availability of cartridges and the prices of them and that is one of the reasons for settling in on HP laserjets.

    The other thing is how many old ones are still running. I have a 2500 running almost 7 years now it owes me nothing! ( And I bought it refurbished!)

    Thank you for the contributions to date. Please could you guys let me know the pro's and cons of your preferred printer and if the machine can be networked (OS = WinXP)

    Rather than buy a printer that can be networked, just buy what yoiu like and then add a print server and you can network anything.
    My reasons for HP I thought I stated were ease of buying cartridges, quality of ink, and reliability. I have clients using 12 year old HP laser printers the things just don't die.
