I am looking for a good AIO (flatbed scanner, printer, copier) printer that is supported by Ubuntu. My wife does alot with Photoshop and is very picky on how things come out. I currently have a AIO Epson, it does not play nice with Ubuntu at all, thats whay I am looking for a new one.

Any suggestions?

THANKS!

I would recommend a HP Photosmart C5280. Works out of the box with Ubuntu, photo output is stunning - does full bleed Letter/A4 photos/printing and you can print onto CD/DVD's. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Depends where you are, but I picked mine up for A$150 - US$145 or so.

Ink is very economical, they also have large ink tanks for it, the 74XL ( A$48 ) (black) is supposed to do around 750 or so pages and the color 75XL ( A$53 ) 530.

The HP PSC Series is pretty good. Ive got 2 of 'em and they work great for me.

Yeh HP is great with linux as most of their drivers are ported over to it.
