I am sorry to hear that HP printers have become so bad. I have a five year old HP OfficeJet AIO that has been used and abused and keeps on chugging. The one I had before that was also an HP that ran for at least five years and was abused even more. We literally wore that thing out. That poor thing had days were the scanner would run for 12 hours straight day after day while my wife (aka "the camera nazi" aka "aunt camera") started digitizing her many thousands of photos.
Though I completely agree that monochrome lasers are cheap and reliable. And I have been wanting to get one myself. Good color lasers are expensive though. I have been trying to convince my wife to get a mono laser and keep our current inkjet AIO around for color prints and faxing. Although that Dell Paul linked to has peaked my interest.
And also I will definitely be getting a wireless workgroup printer next time.
