    What is the best stand alone scanner to buy?

    I am in the market for a scanner. In particular one with a good enough scan resolution to scan photos, edit them and have the end result looking good. But the catch is here in the part of Australia I live in, only combo scanners are available. The ones that are printer + scanner all in one. But I don't need a printer as I already have one.

    Also the scan area would have to be a decent size. Because for most of the combo scanners I've seen here, well there scan area is really tiny. Half the time not even as big as A4. And of course it'd have to run in Leopard.

    So my question is does anyone know of a stand alone scanner that would suit my needs? And if so where I could purchase one?

    A number of graphics/photography guys I know use Epson scanners eg. the V200, V350 or V500. Check both hardware and software compatibility though. There are several outlet stores in Aus.
