Fwiw, Fujitsu Fi-4530 like I've got does 11x17" ADF or 11x17+" oversize 
(e.g. foldouts), it's fast, fairly compact, and weighs 18.7 lb. 
Recommended without hesitation for binders/documents. I have the USB 
version and I attest you can drive it from Windows 7+ with a bit of 
fiddling (though drivers are originally for XP I believe).

No, you probably can't buy one from Amazon, but Fujitsu does have a 
newer range that you probably can.

There are quite a few on US Ebay if you can BIN and ship quick enough...
