TidBITS publisher Adam Engst tells me that printers in the early days of the Mac were actually pretty good, with dot-matrix ImageWriters being built like tanks, and a variety of excellent, if pricey, laser printers from Apple, HP, and others. However, there are some cool printing things that only tools like Adobe Acrobat Pro can do. Costs a bit more than the Brother, toner cost per page is higher, but a new drum comes with every cartridge.

Changed in cups Ubuntu: It also has built in duplexing – essential if you want to save paper, and ethernet and USB, but not wireless printing.
