Definitions of cheap vary of course. This past holiday season there were
at least three color laser printers priced at $200 shipped to (IIRC) $300
shipped with postscript and ethernet connectivity built in.
The Kyocera EP C170N was $200 shipped from buy.com and through Amazon but
fulfilled by an arm of Buy.com.
The Xerox Phaser 6180 was (again, IIRC) $250 from Staples with free shipping.
Both of the above models accept an optional duplexer, but the duplexer
costs about what the printers were going for.
The third model was something from Brother, I think, with the duplexer
included and priced around $300 from Newegg.
I bought the Kyocera model because it includes AppleTalk support--not
LocalTalk, but support for AppleTalk over Ethernet. I still have some
old Macs around (bringing this sort of on-topic) and the extra
compatibility is nice.
P.S. The KTM1523/512 Kingston 512MB module works as an upgrade in the
C170N, so the expensive Kyocera upgrade can be avoided.
