Laser printers are awesome

We just snagged this baby, the Brother HL-2070N. Network laser printer for less than $150. Mac and Linux compatible, with Linux drivers actually on the Brother web site (!) for downloading. The toner cart was about $60 from Office Despot, too, good for approximately 2,500 pages.

If you need help getting this to work under Linux, take a look at Linux Printing for starters, then take a gander over at this forum post, but you'll ultimately want to use these instructions and the Brother driver.

On the Mac, just look for it and it works under Bonjour/Rendezvous. There's Windows stuff too, but I haven't a Windows box to test.

But who cares? Laser awesome.
