An HP printer is about to be purchased due to cannons poor compatability with Linnux. It is for immediate use so the choice is limited to what is in the shop now. The two options are between an HP auto smart 4680 and and HP 2480. There will also be a backup of work to cd and a reformat and install. The system is 32 bit and I'd prefer to use either 8.04.4lts or 10.04lts as it is a system critical machine. It'd be nice if all was up and running within an hour or so of the printers arrival. Before makeing the expensive jump I'd like some advice on which system/printer combo is likely to be most trouble free and stable. I'd be grateful for any help/advice and experiances.
