Thread moved to a more appropriate sub-forum. Not a "Schweb's Lounge" topic.

Thanks,

HP printers with Air Play are quite affordable.
You can insure your electronics under renter's insurance or home owner's insurance if you're worried about someone stealing it.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Try Puffin or Skyfire browser - if you really need flash. Works but isn't the greatest as Flash generally expects you to have a mouse with a bunch of buttons and a scroll wheel.
Puffin Browser
For Consumers
But I can get to many flash sites and browse as usual - i.e.
KONAWORLD
Santa Cruz Bicycles

Edit: I have a Canon Airprint printer that wasn't too expensive (I think like $150) and everything prints to it well as it has Airprint AND a Bonjour server.

Actually, the pixels is not really good. The iPad 4 would be good choice.
